This is a very moist and delicious cake. Although its beginning lies in a boxed cake mix, the finish is spectacular and memorable. The Kahlua liqueur gives it an exceptionally rich and unique flavor. Definitely for the adults, it is highly complemented when served with coffee drinks as an after-dinner treat.




In a large mixing bowl, sift the cake mix, pudding mix, and granulated sugar. Stir in slightly beaten eggs, oil, vodka, 1/4 cup coffee liqueur, and water. Beat for 4 minutes. Pour batter into well greased and floured bundt cake pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool for about 5-6 minutes in pan, then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely. Turn cake right side up onto a pretty serving plate.

Make a glaze by combining the 1/4 cup coffee liqueur with 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar. Poke cake several times with a fork and cover with glaze. Allow to partially dry, then dust with the remaining 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar.

Source: I received this recipe from a friend (Shake 'em Up Charlie) who was a bartender back in the early 80's. We enjoyed it so much that I added it to my list of "Adult Party Fare", and have used it so many times now that the edges are frayed. I suppose it's been baked into every shape and size of cake that I can think of, but our favorite was always the Bundt Cake. It needs nothing more than a hot cup of well-brewed coffee to make it fit for a King.

Combine the cake mix, oil, pudding mix, eggs, coffee, creme de cacao, and kahlua in a large bowl. Beat for 4 minutes until quite smooth.
