Edited January 2019 // The only updates to this recipe are the pictures. It is still just as delicious and easy to make. This super easy Chocolate Chip Kahlua Cake Recipe is a chocolate chip Kahlua cake drizzled with a Kahlua glaze.
Every 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?
Chocolate Chip Kahlua Cake //
1 box chocolate cake mix (your favorite brand)
1 box (3.75-ounce) instant chocolate pudding mix
2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup Kahlua
1 (6-ounce) package chocolate chips
Kahlua Glaze //
1 cup powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons Kahlua
Put everything in the bowl except for the chocolate chips.
Mix for a few minutes until it is well combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips. I had a few half empty chocolate chip packages laying around, so I used a mixture of milk and semi-sweet chips.
Put the batter in a greased Bundt pan.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then turn out onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
Start the glaze.
Whisk together the powdered sugar and Kahlua until smooth.
Pour the glaze over the top of the cake
