1 1/4
cup water
cup vegetable oil
cup strongly brewed coffee, cooled to warm
tablespoons Kahlúa, divided
cup heavy whipping cream
tablespoons caramel sauce, for drizzling

  • 1 In a bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil and the eggs. Beat for 2 minutes, or until smooth. Add the coffee and 4 tablespons Kahlua to the batter. Beat 1 more minute.
  • 2 Pour batter evenly into 8 coffee mugs, about 2/3rds high in each one. Bake according to box directions, or until done, about 25 minutes. Use a toothpick to check doneness. It should be clean.

Mo-Kahlua Mug Delights  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

Sit down, because have I got a doozy for you.

Oh and light some incense. This is going to rock your mind.

I'm talking about Betty Crocker dark chocolate cake. I'm talking about dark chocolate cake that has a love affair with strong coffee. I'm talking about dark chocolate cake that has a love affair with strong coffee and then booze enters the room in a tuxedo and flowers and things get really hot.

You think it stops there? It doesn't. Because then, THEN: that same tux-wearing booze brings some heavy whipping cream and OH. It's too much to even say. I would blush.

But let me just share this with you: You. Serve. These. Delights. In. Coffee. Mugs.

Need a cool rag? Here.

Start with some coffee. Make it strawng. I like mine French-pressed. Go ahead and pour yourself a cup.

Brewed coffee

Gather your Betty Crocker cake mix goods.

Cake mix

Whizz, whizz, whizzzzz….

Beating it up

Pour the mixture about 2/3rds high in each mug. I poured a little too much in mine. Oopsie.

Mix in mugs

Bake her up, dollop with Kahlua cream and will ya look at that? I mean, come on.

Finished Kahlua cake in mugs

This is so easy it would be embarrassing if you didn't make these for your next party. Or the next hour of your life.
