One of my favorite drinks is made with kahlua so I couldn't resist making and then posting this yummy cake. Plan ahead, cake must cool for 4 hours. Cooling time is included in prep time. I got it from Paula Deen's magazines.

Excellent! I followed this recipe as written and the result was wonderful. I think next time I will add a little more Kahlua as another reviewer did, just because I love Kahula. Thank you for sharing.

Mmmmmmmmm. Very, very good. I ran a little shy on the amount of Kahlua I had on hand, so I added in a splash of dark rum to make up the difference. Worked out fine. I'm making this one again soon!

This was an amazing cake! I'm a Kahlua freak so this was perfect. I used 3/4 cup of Kahlua and 1/4 cup of water for the cake mix. I considered skipping the water all together and using 1 cup of Kahlua...LOL! I thought that there was going to be too much topping at first but it all soaked in and made it super moist and delish! Thanks so,so much for posting this!
