chocolate kahlua cake recipeEvery now and again a recipe intrigues me even though it is not the kind of thing that I would usually make.  This one starts with a cake mix and a package of pudding.  I know, I know, chemicals and preservatives and stuff, but sometimes there is nothing more delicious than a cake made from a mix.  And let me tell ya, this cake is delicious.  I saw my friend Tiffany post about this Chocolate Kahlua Cake on her Facebook page, it is her husband’s birthday cake request every year, and since I am a bore, I asked her for the recipe.  I am so glad that I did.  This cake is moist, chocolaty, and pretty much my idea of heaven.  Booze and chocolate.  Enough said.

Tiffany only sprinkles hers with a dusting of powdered sugar.  Which I am sure is great, but why not up the booze factor?  I bought the Kahlua for the cake and had a ton leftover so why not make a glaze?

Tiffany has a cute recipe card download on her website that you should add to your recipe box.

    This looks amazing! How would you recommend adapting this bundt cake to using a normal cake pan?

      I would bake it in two layer cake pans.

        Was just going to ask similar question to above… I have made this delicious cake many many times.. (Although I substitute the Khalua with Disorono Amaretto (AMAZING)…. but I’m just getting ready to make this now, and I can’t find my bundt pan anywhere!!! Was wondering if I should try to make it into cupcakes? Or some kind of other cake pan? Would you do anything differently as cupcakes? (Might be more convenient that way, as ALL of my coworkers have been requesting I make this… also had to print out copies of it and distribute.

    Can you omit the chocolate chips?

  3. Karen says:

    Should the pudding be instant or the kind that you cook?

  4. Michael Simmonds Jr says:

    What will happen if you use a Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix that has pudding in the mix? I can’t find any without pudding in the mix…
