This is a very simple cake made with a boxed cake, coffee ice cream and a cream cheese frosting. My friend Tim gave this to me. He found it in Family Circle. I tweeked and here it is for you.
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box French vanilla cake mix
- 1 pint coffee ice cream, melted
- 3 eggs
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur (Kahlua)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- Preheat oven to 350°. Coat standard bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Dust with flour, shake out excess.
- With electric mixer, beat cake mix, melted ice cream, & eggs in a bowl for 3 minutes on medium speed. Scrape into prepared cake pan.
- Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean. Cool pan on wire rack 20 minutes.
- Frosting: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, butter, liqueur & vanilla on medium speed until light & creamy (2 mins or so). On low speed, gradually beat in confectioners sugar, about 1 to 2 minutes. Refrigerate while cake cools.
- Once cake is cool, spread frosting over top & sides. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Dust with cocoa.
Well I made this exactly as written. If you didn't tell me it was supposed to be a tiramisu cake I never would have known. The cake was good but hardly any (if any) coffee flavor came through, and if I were to make it again I would probably cut the cake in half lengthwise and layer the cake with the frosting. It got eaten, no problems there! Just not what I was hoping for.
I've made this cake before and I do love it but I dont think 60 minutes is the correct baking time at 350. I took it out after only 50 minutes and it was still a bit dry... I'll try again but its a delicious cake the eveyrone loves.. just have to get the timing right
I made this cake to take to my daughters year end dance party. It was a hit!!! I was asked for the recipe over and over. My husband accidently purchased Irish Cream instead of Kahlua so we made two batches of icing. One Kahlua and one Irish Cream. They were both good; however I would favor the Irish Cream as it was a bigger hit with the kids and this cake we sprinkled with cinnamon instead of cocoa. I would recommend this recipe to everyone, very easy to make.
