Notes

  • Use a dark chocolate cake mix if possible for a deeper chocolate flavor.
  • If you can't find creme de cacao, use Godiva Liquor.
  • Let your eggs come to room temperature, if possible before preparing this Black Russian Cake.
  • Sift your powdered sugar for a lump-free Kahlua glaze.
  • For better flavor, brew your coffee strong.
  • Be sure to use instant chocolate pudding mix.
  • For a fun twist, use Salted Caramel Kahlua.
  • The boozy glaze will absorb better if the cake is slightly warm.  If you miss this point, try warming up the glaze before brushing over the cake.
  • Place a plate under the cake on the cooling rack to catch the glaze that falls off.  Pour back over the cake!
