Kahlua Bundt Cake



The secret is in the Kahlua coffee liqueur – think of this dessert as an edible cocktail! The flavorful liqueur is not only baked in the batter, but it is also drizzled on top of the cake once it comes out of the oven. The bundt cake comes out incredibly moist and is one of those recipes that tastes even better the next day.

This bundt cake is perfect for parties and potlucks. You could even serve it with a Kahlua cocktail!
