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!

    • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
    • 3/4 cup milk

    • 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!

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
