Recipe: Easy Black Russian Cake

From Denny: Want an easy impressive cake to make for your gathering? Want to try a new recipe for the upcoming holidays? This one is too easy as you can use a cake mix. You might want to keep this lush cake for adults only! :) For variations try it out with a devils food cake mix or even a German chocolate!

From: Marion “Mike” Bristol

Serves: 12 - She usually serves it with whipped cream.


1 box basic yellow cake mix (without pudding)

1/4 cup, plus 3 Tablespoons, Kahlúa liqueur (or coffee), divided

1/4 cup vodka

1 small (3.9 ounce) box instant chocolate pudding

4 eggs

1 cup oil (canola oil is great for a neutral taste)

3/4 cup water

1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped pecans


1. In an electric mixer, mix all ingredients except the 3 tablespoons of Kahlúa and the chopped pecans for 2 minutes at medium speed.

2. Spray or grease a Bundt pan with shortening.

3. Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Pour batter over nuts.

4. Bake at 325 degrees for 55 minutes if pan has a dark, non-stick interior.

5. Remove cake and put on a cooling rack for 5 to 10 minutes. Pour remaining 3 tablespoons of Kahlúa over cake while still warm. After cake is cooled, turn over onto a plate or cake stand.

6. Serve with whipped cream, if desired. Cover cake with plastic wrap to keep moist.

Note: Devil’s food or chocolate cake mix can be substituted for the yellow cake mix.
