Kahlua Bundt Cake is still my go-to recipe when I need a quick, yet decadent, dessert. This moist, dense chocolate cake is a snap to fix. You are going to fall in love with this Kahlua Bundt Cake recipe.

This fabulous chocolate cake recipe is embarrassingly simple. You’d never guess that it starts with a cake mix!

Kahlua Bundt Cake

I know “semi-homemade” conjures up some bad images for many of my foodie friends: less than gourmet dishes, gloppy casseroles with canned soups, boxed “helper” meals, etc. But I have a few such recipes that my family adores, like this Easy Lemon Bundt Cake, and I just can’t just ignore their requests. And when you find recipes like these fabulous Cake Mix Cookies, you can see there’s a time and place for said shortcuts.

This Kahlua Bundt Cake is another prime example. I have baked  it for teachers’ luncheons, funeral dinners as well as for family birthdays. And despite it being made with a boxed cake mix, I always get requests for the recipe. I think the full pint of sour cream may have something to do with the overwhelmingly positive reactions.

A Dreamy, Dense, Rich and Easy Chocolate Cake

One bowl, a mixer and a handful of ingredients and you’ll have the most incredible aroma wafting through your kitchen in no time. It’s a dump and mix recipe, truly a no brainer.

PRO-Tip: I highly recommend spraying your Bundt pan with Baker’s Joy or some other oil/flour spray so that you’ll get an easy release from the pan. Cool in the pan for just 10 minutes, then invert onto a rack till it cools to room temperature.

As you can see, my Kahlua Bundt Cake came out with nary a chocolate chip left behind. All this needs is a sprinkle of powdered sugar and you’ll hear nothing but swooning. Seriously, if you’re overwhelmed with the holidays, this recipe will be a lifesaver.

  1. Good thing I’m sitting…Oops – excuse me – just fell on the floor swooning! Seriously delectable looking cake, Liz…Sometimes the full-on sour cream (instead of Greek yogurt) may be a very beautiful thing ; especially when it’s served inside a chocolate cake laced with Kahlua =)

  2. I bet this would be pretty baked in my gingerbread house cake pan and topped with powdered sugar:@)

  3. I’m a bit of a recipe purist too, but I’m always happy to make an exception for a winner like this!

  4. Oh my goodness look at all that fudgy, chocolate-y, rich cake goodness with an extra added yummy factor of Kahlua. Mmmm…

  5. I might be a slight food snob 😉 but I’m not against using a cake mix for recipes! This looks gorgeous and you’d never know by looking at it you did use a cake mix. I’m betting it was delicious too!

  6. I say there is nothing wrong with boxed cake mixes…especially when the results are this moist and delicious looking. This cake needs no icing or topping. It’s perfect just the way it is!!!

  7. Liz, you are the cake baking Queen!! Bundt cakes are always my go -to too when I need a pretty dessert fast! and I really never baked much from box mixes until recently. . it really makes for a faster cake in the oven and tastes great!! Plus I love one bowl cake batters .. love the addition of the chocolate chips!!

  8. Whoa. This looks great (as per usual!) I’ve never used Baker’s Joy before. I’m going to invest in some. But there’s nothing like buttering and flouring your own pan though 🙂

  9. Kahlua?? Anytime, Liz! I would die for a sip right now…….

  10. I can see why this cake is much requested, Liz. So rich, so dark, so chocolatey!

  11. Oh, this cake looks a moist, chocolately, dream!

  12. I love khalua and chocolate! YUMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYY!

  13. Such a decadent looking cake!

  14. I love the texture of this cake! One bowl, it doesn’t get easier than that!

  15. This has just become my favorite Cake and I’ve never even tasted it. What a wonderful recipe. Colorado’s altitude can make baking finicky, so I almost always use a mix. Pinned!

  16. What a gorgeous, moist looking bundt. Love it!!!

  17. Since I don’t bake a lot from scratch? This is the PERFECT bundt recipe for me…it looks SO GOOD!

  18. I still haven’t gotten around to using a box mix cake, I really should try it one day as they are becoming more and more available here in the UK. This cake looks lovely 🙂

  19. Ignore the naysayers. It’s all about the results and when family asks for something it’s because it’s GOOD. I think this cake’s a keeper. 🙂

  20. Oh my Lord in Heaven, please forgive me for my sin of gluttony with Liz’s kahlua cake . . . I must admit that I would eat it all and not share. Again please forgive me for my gluttony and for Liz’s endless temptations!

    Buon Natale e’ tu, mia bella amica e’ famiglia!

  22. If I can trust anyone with a baked good, its you! 🙂

  23. You already know I’m no cake mix “snob” Liz:) This cake looks oh so decadent! Something I could definitely use about this time of night, lol…Thanks for sharing, Liz…

  24. How delicious is this kahlua flavoured bundt! I am loving how little ingredients it requires and how simple it is to make especially. Thanks for sharing the awesome recipe!

  25. Probably my favorite type of boozy cake, Liz–you’ve nailed it! I think semi-homemade is the best way to go in a tight fix, so I’m on board with you on this one!!

  26. Your bundt cake looks so moist and decadent!

  27. Such a perfect, easy way to have chocolate cake. I really love it!!!

  28. OMG, this is EXACTLY like a birthday cake my mom would make for us growing up! Only minus the kahlua, which sounds like such a lovely addition. But the cake mix is the same, the sour cream, the chocolate chips, the bundt cake pan… And yes, it was awesome and frequently requested over the years! I’ll have to tell her to start adding kahlua, I bet that takes it over the top.

  29. I need a cake for a potluck on Friday- I think this is the one! I think a boozy cake would be the perfect way to celebrate the last day of school for the year. 🙂

  30. Liz, I’m hosting our bunco Christmas party on Thursday and I was just thinking about what to make for dessert. Well, I think I’ve found my answer!! Sounds so amazing and who doesn’t love chocolate?!!!

  31. I try to limit boxed recipes as much as possible but some of my family favorites have a few “premade” ingredients. This cake looks fantastic.

  32. I can be a food snob but there have been so many times that I’ve done semi- homemade things that have the best reactions from friends and family. Who’s to argue with success. This is a keeper, Liz.

  33. Your bundt cake looks awesome, so rich and enticing 😀
    I need this sweetness in my life!

    Cheers
