Got this off the Kahlua web site. It was a big hit at our family reunion!
Make and share this Black Russian Cake recipe from Food.com.

Followed the directions, but, this wasn't moist enough and not enough flavor per DH, and he knows his cakes. He is like Mikey and will eat most anything, lol. This just didn't work for us. I love Kahlua and was excited to make this. I would have liked it a little better if I would have left the glaze off it.
Excellent, moist cake! I used a white cake mix since that's what I had on hand. Otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Since it made such a large cake, I shared 1/3 with the elderly neighbors, 1/3 for Kahlua loving friends and left the last 1/3 for us. (They LOVED it too.) Be sure to dust it with powdered sugar just before serving; the cake is sooooo moist it will just absorbs right into the cake. I'll make this again--just wonderful!
This is one of the best cakes I've ever made.....very moist and full of great flavor.
