Easy Mocha Bundt® Cake Recipe

Easy Mocha Bundt® Cake Recipe
The combination of chocolate and coffee, referred to as mocha, has been a classic for centuries, and it doesn’t look like its popularity is going to go away any time soon. Even those who don’t like to drink these flavors, they go well in desserts like the following Easy Mocha Bundt® Cake. Although it starts with a cake mix, it is moist and homemade tasting; nobody will guess that it is so easy to put together.
The mocha glaze adds moistness, so this delicious cake will last a week or so if wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. You probably won’t have to test that theory, however, because it will disappear quickly.

12 Servings

Cake :
1 15.25 ounce devil's food cake mix
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3.4 ounce package instant chocolate pudding mix
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon instant coffee
3/4 cup hottest tap water
1/2 cup coffee liqueur

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup coffee liqueur

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spray a standard Bundt® pan (10 inch) liberally with Baker's Joy (or the equivalent). If that isn't available, spray with non-stick spray and dust with flour. Set aside.
  3. Place the cake mix, white and brown sugar, chocolate pudding mix, and eggs in the bowl of a mixer.
  4. Dissolve the instant coffee in the hot water and add to the mix with the oil and coffee liqueur.
  5. Turn on the mixer and mix on low speed, scraping down the sides once or twice, until mixed.
  6. Turn the speed up to medium and mix until smooth.
  7. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bang the pan on the counter once or twice to eliminate air bubbles.
  8. Bake 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the cake leaves the side of the pan. Remove from the oven.
  9. Meanwhile, while the cake is baking, make the Glaze; melt the butter in a small saucepan; add the sugar and stir over low to medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Turn the heat up a little and stir in the liqueur and heat through.
  10. When the cake is done, use a skewer to poke holes over the surface; pour the warm glaze over all and let sit 15 minutes to soak in.
  11. Invert onto a serving platter and let cool thoroughly before cutting into slices. If there are leftovers, cover tightly with plastic wrap. The cake stays moist up to a week.
