recipe box Wednesday

It's snowing, again.

Big flakes.  The melted fronted yard is now blanketed again.

Time for some chocolate cake, don't you think?

( I actually made this last Saturday, when we  needed a chocolate fix.)

This is from Bylery's first cookbook-it's a classic from 1985.

(found this image on-line, I was too lazy to take my own picture...)

There is not one healthy thing about this cake, but every now and then it is okay to indulge.  It's not like you're going to eat the whole cake in one sitting....

Black Russian Bundt Cake

1 pkg. yellow cake mix (no pudding in it, please)
1 6 oz. pkg. instant chocolate pudding
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/4 c. vodka
1/4 c. kahlua
3/4 c. water
Glaze (below)
powdered sugar
1/4 c. kahlua

Grease and flour 12 cup bundt pan.  Preheat oven to 350.  In large mixer bowl combine cake mix, sugar, pudding, oil, eggs, vodka, kahlua, and water; mix at low speed about 1 minute.  Beat at medium speed 4 minutes.  Pour into prepared pan.  Bake until cake tests done with wooden pick, 60-70 minutes.

Prepare glaze:  Combine 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 1/4 c. Kahlua, blend until smooth.

Let cake cool in pan 10 minutes; invert onto wire rack or plate.  Poke holes in cake with fork; slowly pour glaze over cake.  Cool completely, sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

Charlie has been requesting a slice in his lunchbox every day this week....can you blame him?


  1. That sounds delicious! I think chocolate cake is the perfect solution to too much snow. :o)
