Kahlua Chocolate Chip Cake

I remember making this cake years ago with a chocolate cake mix.  I made it this weekend with a yellow cake mix.  Both are so yummy... very moist!

I have found that cake mixes are coming in different sizes now.  You will have to add part of a 2nd cake mix or adjust the ingredients.  I used part of a 2nd cake mix and thought I would just make the cake again soon.

AND - I love, love my silicone bundt pan.  Cakes just pop out!


Kahlua Chocolate Chip Cake

1  18.25 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup sugar
1  3.9 oz pkg instant chocolate pudding
1 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1/4 cup vodka or water
1/4 cup Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (tossed in a little flour or cake mix - so they don't sink)

Glaze

1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup Kahlua or other coffee liqueur

Combine cake mix, sugar, instant pudding, oil eggs, vodka or water and 1/4 cup of Kahlua.  Beat at medium speed for several minutes until well combined. Mix in chocolate chips.  Pour batter into a greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes ( I baked mine about 50 minutes) or until tester comes out clean.  Allow to cool on wire rack for 20 minutes and invert onto plate.   

Mix glaze while cake is baking/cooling.  Once cake is inverted onto plate, poke holes in the cake using a toothpick.  Pour the glaze over the top of the cake.  Top with sprinkled powdered sugar.
