"Mmmm . . . Thank You" Kahlua Cake

This recipe comes from an acquaintance's recipe repertoire. I've made it a couple times and it is SOOOO good! Seriously, this is one delicious chocolate cake.

I had to hunt around for the recipe; I thought I had it in my recipe file, but it wasn't there. I'm posting it here while I'm thinking about it, so I know where it is in the event that I want to make it sometime in the future.

Now, about the name of this cake:
It's known as the "Mmmmm . . . thank you" cake because she'd made this cake (actually it was the mini loaves version) to give as gifts at Christmas time. Anyway, while the mini loaves were sitting on the counter her young son was sneaky and took a taste. Although she was frustrated at the time, it is funny looking back on it because all he said after chomping on a cake was, "Mmmmm . . . thank you."

One additional note: She sometimes uses an icing drizzle to top it off.

"Mmmmm . . . Thank You" Kahlua Cake, the recipe:

1 Chocolate Cake Mix (I use Target's Archer Farms decadent chocolate cake mix. Betty Crocker is fine, though.)
1 (3 ½ oz.) small box of Instant Chocolate Pudding
1 - 6 oz. Bag of Chocolate Chips (You could omit these if they'll be too hard.)
2 c. Sour Cream (I use Daisy light.)
4 Eggs
¾ c. Cooking Oil
½ c. Kahlua

Mix all ingredients together. Fold in chocolate chips last. Bake at 350o for 50 minutes. Makes one Bundt pan cake or 6 small (mini) loaf pans.

You haven't made this for a while. You in the mood for baking? I can't say no to chocolate cake.
