Kahlua Bundt Cake

    Posted by  ·  May 17, 2012

    My friend Missy makes the most delicious Kahlua cake. It is supper moist and since it starts with a cake mix it goes together quickly! You won’t be disappointed!

    Kahlua Cake

    1 yellow cake mix
    1 (6 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 cup oil
    4 large eggs
    1/4 cup Kahlua
    1/4 cup Creme de Cacao chocolate liquor
    3/4 cup water

    Glaze

    1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (about half a 1 pound box)
    1/2 cup melted butter
    2 Tablespoons Kahlua
    2 Tablespoons Creme de Cacao

    Directions:

    Butter bundt pan and preheat oven to 350°F.

      My mom makes one similar, but she uses a fudge cake mix and no glaze. Just powdered sugar on top. If she's making it for me she adds chocolate chips and walnuts. They're so good! I'll have to try it with the yellow cake mix one of these days.

      I have the cake in the oven as I type this. While looking over the directions for the glaze I don't see anything about adding the melted butter in. I don't want to add it if I'm not supposed to.

      This is one of our beloved family recipes, as well! We jokingly refer to it as "booze cake" (yes, we know the alcohol burns off in the baking), though we should probably be calling it "baby cake" since somehow, someone always ends up pregnant after having it! LOL!

      This sounds so good. My husband use to make Kahlua and it was a lot cheaper that way:)

      I still have about a 1/2 gallon of homemade Kahula that I made to bottle as Xmas gifts. Looks like you have given me a delicious idea to use up some very aged liquor!! YUM ☕

      I have made this cake for years however, I use 1/4 c vodka instead of creme de cocoa and after taking out of pan, I poke it with holes all over and the glaze I use is 1/2 c powdered sugar and 1/4 c kahlua and brush it on cake so it soaks in--very moist, serve with whipped cream--call it a Black Russian Cake.

      I used only half the glaze and it was plenty. What a waste, but next timeI'll halve the glaze recipe. My husband said it was one of the best cakes I'd ever made.
