Molly’s Kahlua Vodka Cake

My niece Molly told me about this delicious cake! Moist & very flavourful, it made a wonderful dessert & the leftovers were great with a cup of coffee!!

This recipe is made with a boxed cake mix, a box of chocolate pudding, kahlua & vodka…. you just have to pick up a few things at the grocery store so you can make this!

Quick to put together, non-dairy & boozy! There is a glaze but I think that the cake would be just as good without the glaze if you do not want to make it. The glaze is made with kahlua & icing sugar…you could just sprinkle some icing sugar over the cake to ‘dress it up’ a bit & it would be less sweet.

Here is the recipe


For the cake

1 box yellow cake mix

1 box instant chocolate pudding

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup oil

4 eggs

1/4 cup kahlua

1/4 cup vodka

3/4 cup water

For the glaze

3/4 cup icing sugar, sifted

1/4 cup kahlua


Preheat oven to 350f

Grease a tube or bundt cake pan…I spray my pans with a non-stick spray

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a mixer until well combined
  2. Put the batter into the prepared cake pan
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour
  4. Let the cake cool for about 10 minutes before turning it out of the pan..if the cake is too hot it will break… let the cake cool on a cooling rack
  5. When the cake is cool, make the glaze
  6. Mix the sifted icing sugar & kahlua together
  7. Pour over the cooled cake


I sprinkles some chocolate sprinkles on the cake…

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
