This is another take on Kahlua Chocolate cake. My sister made this a few years back at Christmas and everyone loved it. It is a very moist cake.


Chocolate Kahlua Cake



1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 box Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix
1 cup Vegetable Oil
3/4 C Water
1/4 C Kahlua (or other coffee flavored liqueur)
1/4 C Vodka
3 Eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into bundt pan.
Bake for 50-60 minutes. Test for doneness with toothpick. Remove cake from oven, and immediately pour glaze evenly over cake while still in pan. Let cake rest for 30 minutes before removing from pan.


Glaze


1 C Sugar
1/2 C Butter (not margarine)
1/4 C Hot water
2 Tbsp. (Kahlua) Coffee Liqueur
2 Tbsp. Vodka

Mix first three ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in Vodka and Kahlua. Pour over cake.

Enjoy!
