There isn’t much to say except fa-bu-lous!

Recipe Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 1 (16.5 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (12 ounce) package mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar, or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray; dust with flour.
  2. 2 Combine cake mix, sour cream, eggs, coffee-flavored liqueur, oil, pudding mix, orange zest, and cinnamon in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until very smooth, about 4 minutes. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared tube pan.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Invert onto a plate; let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

  1. I like the cake, but the orange is overpowering. I will reduce it by half or leave it out entirely so that the cinnamon and Coffee flavors come thru more.
  2. It was very good. I didn’t add cinnamon. I have made a different Kahlua chocolate cake before this one and I’ve never used orange zest or cinnamon. I did add orange zest. My grandson noticed the orange and didn’t like it. I was surprised he tasted it! Anyway, it tastes better if you warm it - Read more ...
  3. I've made this cake for a couple decades! I never made it with the orange & cinnamon though. I usually frost it with a light buttercream frosting (though it doesn't need it) because we love frosting on cakes! I add 3/4 cup Kaluha instead of the 1/2 cup and it seems perfect! In so many - Read more ...
  4. I've made a similar cake for over a decade, maybe two. This recipe has the addition of the orange zest and it is spectacular! Thanks for the fresh ideas. I put whipped cream or devonshire cream on it for those who find it too chocolatey! Wonderful. Use only fresh cake mix and pudding mix, don't - Read more ...
  5. This was fantastic! Very rich moist full bodied flavor without being overbearing. I made a thick paste of the confectioners sugar with Kahula to pour over cake rather than dusting with the sugar alone - was "wow'd" by all!
  6. I made this as written and it really is very good. Texture is somewhere between cake and brownie and flavor is mostly rich chocolate. I will make it again but without the chocolate chips--there was so much chocolate that the chips weren't noticeable except as an odd texture here and there. And on half I - Read more ...
  7. It was pretty good. You can't taste the Kahlua that much.
  8. Nice twist with the orange zest and cinnamon. I might cut the orange zest next time so it's a little more subtle.
  9. The only modification was adding a bit more orange zest and my guests LOVED it. There was only one slice left for the birthday girl! Will definitely be making this oh-so-simple-but-delicious recipe again.
  10. Very good! I didn't dust with powdered sugar. Instead I poked holes in it and drizzled Kahlua liqueur over it and around the bottom edge. Made all the difference in the world. Kind of like a rum cake.
