This recipe is from my mom and I'm not sure where she got it, but it's so good that it will make you cry. She makes it for people when they are sick, or when they are well, or when they have family visiting, or when they just need a REALLY GOOD DESSERT to serve.
At one point she was making it so often that the guy at the liquor store knew her by name, and if you know my mom that sentence will make you fall down laughing because a half a margarita gets that woman silly and walking sideways.
So here it is -
WHITE RUSSIAN CAKE
1 Yellow Cake Mix
1 6oz box of Instant Chocolate Pudding
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
1/4 cup vodka
3/4 cup water
Mix all the ingredients together for 4 minutes. Pour into a greased Bundt pan and bake at 325 for 60 minutes. You might want to check the cake after 50 minutes and cover it with tinfoil so the top doesn't get too brown.
Then, make the glaze: (yeah baby, all that chocolately, alcoholic goodness PLUS A GLAZE!)
1/3 cup Kahlua
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Mix the glaze well with a fork. Punch holes in the top of the cake with a toothpick or bamboo skewer and pour the glaze over the cake sloooowly so it sinks in and makes the whole thing gooey and yummy.
Enjoy. And don't go finishing the vodka and Kahlua before the cake is finished baking. Save some for afterwards.
