An Oldie But Goodie December 23, 2011

 Khalua Cake-just a look at the recipe tells you it is much-loved.  I wish we could claim this as an original but it comes from Carville, a dear family friend, who had actually forgotten about the recipe until I mentioned it recently.

It is simple to make,  incredibly moist and full of wonderful chocolate and Khalua flavor.  I originally made the cake in a bundt pan, which makes a beautiful presentation. Years later I started making the cake in mini bundt pans so I could give them as gifts. Now I have  switched to mini muffin pans and they make darling little bite size cakes. Don’t be fooled-you can’t eat just one.

We want to share the  recipe for this yummy treat with you  and hope you will enjoy it with your loved ones.

Khalua Cake

1 pkg white cake mix

1 sm pkg instant chocolate pudding

3 eggs

2/3 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup vodka

1/3 cup Khalua

1/4 cup water

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, mix until well blended.  Pour into a prepared bundt pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes and then invert and cool on wire rack.


3/4 cup powdered sugar


When cake is cool mix powdered sugar and desired amount of Khalua-depending on the consistency you want for he drizzle-and pour over bundt cake.

Sweet treats to you,
