If you read the title and automatically thought: is that like a “mommy drink”? Then YES this is the post for you!
If I say mommy drink and you know exactly what I am talking about then YES you must have children…although children are not required in order to have a mommy drink but they sure make you feel like you need one 24/7, 365 days a year!
What a mommy drink is (if I must explain….!): having a drink in an inconspicuous cup (for example your kid’s school cup, your running water cup or a local gas station’s soda cup) and fill it with not only soda but mostly ALCOHOL and when someone (usually a kid) tries to drink from said cup you scream out loud: “no, no, don’t drink from that, that’s my mommy drink!” That my friends, is a mommy drink. Dads usually are excused from such behavior but not exempt!
I hope I haven’t let out some serious secret regarding adults drinking habits!
So this cake is in the same realm as the drink. Alcohol and plenty of it. I saw the idea in Tori Spelling’s new book: CelebraTORI (please don’t judge me…it had a pretty cover and I am a visual person!) Her cake is slightly different, she makes it with wine but she does suggest to be creative and try different boozes (she said liqueurs but I say let’s be realistic and go with booze!) Since I am Captain of the Creative Alcohol Food (self appointed title) I decided to give it my best shot (no pun intened)
1 Box Yellow Cake Mix (mix only)
1 3-ounce box instant pudding mix:
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup Kahlua
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or spray a Bundt Cake pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine all your ingredients, mix well and pour into your prepared pan. Bake in your preheated oven for 45 minutes. Cool and serve.
Note: I wanted to make a Kahlua glaze to pour over my cake but alas I ran out of time and when everyone showed up the cake was pretty much history!
Please feel free to experiment with the type of alcohol in your cake. I also thought of a “margarita theme” with tequila and maybe lime pudding? Or Rum and custard? So many options!
