Chocolate Kahlua Cake


  • 1 chocolate cake mix*
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream or buttermilk
  • 1 cup Kahlua (or Bailey’s or other flavored liqueur is a fun alternative)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

*Or to make cake mix from scratch: Mix 2 cups flour, 1 ½ cups sugar, ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened), and 1 teaspoon each: baking powder, baking soda and salt

For ganache:

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips



    Preheat oven to 340°F degrees. Place the Fluted bon, Spiral bon or Sunflower Mold on Medium Perforated Baking Sheet and set aside.

    In Stainless Mixing Bowl, whisk together cake mix, eggs, sour cream, Kahlua and oil just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

    Pour batter into mold and bake about 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool, then turn out onto serving plate.

    For ganache:

    Pour cream into Mini Cake or Small Round Mold and bring it just to a boil in microwave, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add 1 cup chocolate chips and swirl to coat all chips. Allow to sit for 2 minutes, then stir until smooth with Mini Whisk. Pour over cake and enjoy.

    Note: for non-alcoholic version, substitute 1 cup milk, water or brewed coffee for Kahlua.
