Kahlua Cake

When Craig worked for Rosemount, a co-worker's wife always gave us this cake for Christmas. Last year when he started at Jacob's I realized I wouldn't get this wonderful cake anymore. So I asked his old co-worker for the recipe and I made it for Craig's new co-workers. This is also the same cake that I made for our Mexican feast.

Kahlua Cake Recipe

-given to us by Dennis & Kelly Meyers

1 pkg Devil’s Food cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 cup Kahlua
¾ cup vegetable oil
½ bag (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine cake mix, eggs, sour cream, Kahlua, and oil in a bowl. Using mixer, beat at low speed to blend ingredients. Increase speed and beat 3-5 minutes on med or fast speed. Stir in choc chips. Pour batter into greased pans. We use small “tin” or aluminum pans (they take less time) but any size will do. Bake at 350 F for 55-60 minutes. We use a toothpick to check for doneness, it should come out “clean”. Let cool for about 30 minutes.

We used the mini loaf pans to give out as gifts.


One recipe makes enough for 6 mini loaf pans

or 4 mini loaf pans and ...
a regular loaf pan to keep :)
or 1 bundt pan
After they cooled, I wrapped them in colored saran wrap...
then for the picture you can guess what shape I put it in :)

I put labels on them so people would know what it was.

Then I wrapped them in basket gift wrap and tied them with curly ribbon.

Then Craig attached our Christmas newsletter to it.

I forgot to add this comment: Beware if you lick the beaters, you'll get a kick from the Kahlua...especially for those good baptists that are not used to drinking :)
