I am so excited to share this Kahlua Cake recipe with all of you, because it was one of my all-time, absolute favorites!  I have been making it for years and every time I share it with family or friends it is always a runaway hit.  No one would ever believe this decadent cake starts with a mix!

The secret is in the Kahlua coffee liqueur – think of this dessert as an edible cocktail!  The flavorful liqueur is not only baked in the batter, but it is also drizzled on top of the cake once it comes out of the oven.  The bundt cake comes out incredibly moist and is one of those recipes that tastes even better the next day.

Pour mixture over nuts in pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. While the cake is still hot, spoon on prepared topping mixture, slowly and evenly. (Don’t poke holes in cake, just pour on top.) Let cool in pan for 45 minutes to an hour, then remove and cool.
