Moving our sub-discussion from another thread.
During this festive, wintery season, adding a little cheer to your baked goods always seems right. I'll start with a real oldie but goodie, and a cherished family favorite. Don't worry that it's made with cake mix and instant pudding, you won't get any complaints.
BLACK RUSSIAN CAKE
1 box chocolate moist cake mix (yellow is OK too)
1 package of instant chocolate pudding
1 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vodka
1/2 cup Kahlua
1/2 cup water (you could use more vodka but it will knock some people over!)
tsp instant espresso
a handful of mini chocolate chips, coated in flour
for glaze: 1/4 cup Kahlua
1 cup confectioner sugar
1/4 stick melted butter
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a bundt pan.
Combine cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil, liquors and water. Beat for 4 minutes. Stir in chips.
Bake for 55 minutes. Cool on a rack.
Make glaze, poke holes in cake and pour slowly over.
Can dust with more confectioners sugar before serving.
