Oh yes, you read that correctly.
Dark, Rich, Deep, Fudgey Chocolate Bundt Cake topped with a deliciously decadent and simple Kahlua Glaze.
When this month’s Crazy Cooking Challenge
was announced as the search for the ULTIMATE Chocolate Cake recipe, I immediately did 2 things: 1) Groaned (remember? 17 Day Diet) 2) jumped on the internet and started searching.
I am a complete and total chocolate snob and any old chocolate cake just doesn’t get my taste buds dancing – up to this point in life, the only two chocolate cakes that have earned my love and passion are the German Chocolate Cake and Texas Sheet Cake.
It took me a couple of days to find a cake recipe that got me excited. I don’t know WHY I didn’t immediately go to Bree’s blog ~ she is after all, fairly amazing and I’m so excited to meet her and be a Food Community Leader with her in a few weeks at Blissdom.
I was immediately drawn to this recipe by the combination of chocolate and Kahlua – I have fond memories of late nights on my apartment patio with my roommate (and pledge class sorority sister, Nicole) that involve kahlua and cream and laughing until we cried. I honestly couldn’t tell y’all the last time that I had Kahlua – so off I went to the liquor store and then the grocery store for cake mix and pudding (yes, cake mix – deal with it)
The only changes that I made to Bree’s Recipe were to use Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix, Dark Chocolate Chips and a Fudge Pudding (why yes, I am a Dark Chocolate lover, why do you ask?)
I made this cake for Nathan’s birthday party (along with non-alcoholic cupcakes for the kids) and I would have taken beautiful pictures of a slice of cake accompanied by the Kahlua bottle and some dark chocolate chips – if the cake hadn’t been positively inhaled and devoured. There were actual, honest to goodness moans of delight from everyone who tasted the cake.
Wickedly – sinfully – amazingly tonguegasmic, that is what this cake is.
