After a bit of a break, I am back and sharing one of my favorite bundt cakes with you. Little L&C had some minor surgery last week and I took some time off to take care of her. She is recovering well, aside from some problems at night, and I am ready to get back in the kitchen to bake. I am so excited that my first recipe of the new year is with the Bundt Bakers! This month’s theme is “favorite bundt cakes”.
Kahlua Cake is at the top of my list for bundt cakes; right next to this Hummingbird Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze. I love anything coffee-flavored, and Kahlua is no exception. Now, I have to warn you. Most of what I bake is from scratch, but this is a family recipe that has been made for years and uses a cake mix as the base. Hopefully I will get to experiment and make a completely homemade version soon, but until then, you need to try this cake ASAP.
With a name like Kahlua Bundt Cake, you’d expect a lot of the liqueur and this recipe doesn’t disappoint. There is both Kahlua and vodka in the cake, as well as Kahlua in the glaze. I had to add some sort of decoration and opted for one of my favorite chocolate sprinkles. These sprinkles don’t taste bland or just sugary, they taste like actual chocolate.
I know I have said “moist” probably too much in this post already – some people seriously hate the word – but there is no other way to describe this cake. Believe me, I looked at the thesaurus! Damp, humid, muggy, soggy, rainy, watery… and it only gets worse. If you know of a better word to describe this luscious and luxurious cake interior, then please let me know.
Kahlua Bundt Cake is seriously is sure to become one of your favorites too! What is your favorite bundt cake? Comment below – would love to know! Happy baking!

You had me at Kahlua. My cake this month started off with a mix as well….not a crime, especially when life requires extra snuggles with little L&C. So glad she is doing well.
Terri Truscello Miller says
Thanks. Definitely lots of snuggles lately. Kahlua is a favorite, both in baking and cocktails! 😉
Girl JAX says

Cake, Kahlua, and sprinkles??? What's not to like???
I love Kalua! I'm sure it's very good!
Patricia Blanco Budia says
Wowww!!! I love it!! It looks great!!! XOXO
Can you substitute something else for the vodka? More Kahlua?
Hi Susan. You can definitely add more vodka, but it won’t have the same taste or texture. Maybe a Godiva chocolate liqueur would be better since it has a creamier texture.
