Vodka Cake, Just Because
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I made this fabulous cake last weekend and posted the below photo. I know it sounds risque, but trust me when I say it is worth the scandal.
Quality vodka and some Kahlua provide the flavor. For all you teetotalers out there do not despair, the alcohol bakes out and in its wake is left a level of moistness that cannot compare. This recipe comes from the cookbook, Being Dead is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral. Highly recommended and not just for this cake recipe, either.
My gift to you this Sunday......
1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
1 small (3.4 ounce) box and 1 large (5.9) ounce box chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs at room temperature, beaten
1 cup oil
1/2 cup Kahlua
1/2 cup vodka (Good quality is important.)
1 container store-bought chocolate fudge icing
Combine, in the bowl of your mixer, the cake mix, chocolate pudding miexes, and the eggs. Mix until creamy. Add the oil, Kahlua, and vodka, and twirl around until there are no lumps. Pour into a well-oiled bundt pan (8 cup size) and bake for approximately 45 minutes. Take it out of the oven and allow it to sit a minute, and the flip it out onto the plate on which you intend to deliver to the bereaved. While it is still piping hot, open the can of chocolate icing and spread it on the cake. It will melt into the cake and the result is celestial. (Seriously)
