Well friends– We had not one but two 4th of July bar-b-ques– all that festive food, fun and friends and a perfect view of the fireworks sitting in Betty’s backyard to boot! It was good old potluck on the table– Sue’s luscious spinach & pineapple salad, Jan’s famous potato salad… and my contribution was this chocolate cake.
Got the recipe from a mom of students at my school. And you’ve never met a moister, smoother chocolate cake. I do have to say it is luscious all on it’s own, but a side scoop of ice cream makes it just about perfect. (Is this too much cake-bragging? I’m just trying to talk you into trying it. It’s that good!)
KAHLUA CHOCOLATE CAKE
1 chocolate cake mix (with pudding in the mix)
2 cups sour cream
3 oz. box vanilla instant pudding
3/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup Kahlua
6 oz. chocolate chips (1 cup)
powdered sugar for dusting the cake
Mix the cake mix, sour cream, instant pudding mix, oil and Kahlua with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the batter into a bundt pan (or tube pan) sprayed with cooking spray. Pop it into the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Cool the cake for 30 minutes and then turn the pan upside down on plate and carefully remove the cake.
When the cake is complete cooled– sprinkle with powdered sugar through a sieve.
And I couldn’t resist adding a pic of our grand-girls all kitted out for 4th of July– looking like all American kids–in their cute little Chinese sort of way…

Certainly does look like a luscious cake. And how cute are your grand-girls! 🙂 I have never seen patriotism displayed so well!
thanks Seana– This their first 4th of July and they jumped in with both feet!
The cake looks so good, so moist and anything with kahlua is good in my opinion. Those little girls all decked out for the 4th are so cute.
Yep, I’ve never used kahlua before– had to go buy a bottle to make this cake– any other suggestions for recipes I could pour it into Suzanne?
The cake looks superb & your Chinese grand-daughters look so cute too,….😃
thanks sweet Sophie!
You had me a Kahlua and Chocolate, always a winning combination!
It was a good one– looking for other recipes with both those ingredients! Do you have one?
That cake looks delish! And your girls are adorable. I love their shoes most of all. It’s a true vision of head to toe! 😊
Thanks Judy– those 3 are Micah’s girls, pretty recently moved here from Shanghai– so I did get a kick out of their all American outfits!!
