Black Russian Bundt Cake ~ 尔罗斯黑蛋糕



This Black Russian Cake gets its name from the famous cocktail made with Vodka and Kahlua, a coffee flavoured liqueur.   As with most liqueur soaked cakes, this cake is very moist and delicious. Although I modified the recipe a  bit, as in cutting down the sugar and the cocoa, the cake was incredibly good and the coffee liqueur gave it a rich and unique flavour.  The cake tasted much better upon 'maturity', the next day.  A keeper recipe for sure!

Recipe for Black Russian Bundt Cake ~  尔罗斯黑蛋   (adapted from 'here' with modification)

    Ingredients

    • 7 oz plain flour
    • 2.1/2 oz cornflour

    • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder  (reduced from 6 Tbsp)

    • 2 oz butter
    • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 1 Tbsp vanilla
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup Vodka (I substituted with water)
    • 1/3 cup Kahlua
    • 1/4 cup Kahlua to drizzle
    Method

    1. Grease a 10 cup Bundt cake pan, dust with some cocoa powder, set aside.
    2. Sift flour, cornflour, dry milk powder, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.  Add in sugar and mix well.
    3. Add butter, oil, milk and vanilla to the dry ingredients.
    4. Beat with a mixer till batter is smooth.
    5. Add eggs till well combined.  Add in Vodka/water and Kahlua, mix evenly.
    6. Pour batter into the prepared Bundt pan and bake in a preheated oven @ 165 deg. C for 45 to 50 mins.   Let cool in pan for about 25 mins. before inverting onto a wire rack to cool.
    7. Wash the Bundt pan and when the cake is cool, put  back into the pan and poke holes on the surface of the cake.
    8. Drizzle on the Kahlua.  Let the cake mature in the pan, overnight.
    9. Unmould the cake, drizzle on some icing sugar or snow powder.  Serve.

  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I already subscribed to your blog and this was the first thing on my feed. I thought "hey I wonder if she saw my recipe" and lo and behold! I love that you adapted it to your own tastes and enjoyed the result. I recently remade it with a few tweaks and I still love it as much as before (even more possibly). Now that I've gotten the trick down for adapting cake mix recipes to being totally homemade (I have replacements for vanilla and chocolate cake mixes that I use), I'm excited to try this for other bundt cakes as well. Thanks again for trying this!

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Sweet potato steamed cake ~ 红薯蒸蛋糕

After making the  Okinawan black sugar steamed cakes, I  made these and this time  added in some sweet potatoes.  These are moist, not overly sweet and can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or served with  a hot pot of brewed tea to snack on.
