Judy’s handwritten and scrapbooked recipe, something I will always treasure.
RECIPE: Judy’s Chocolate Kahlua Cake
1 Duncan Hines Devil’s food cake mix
1 Small instant vanilla pudding mix
1 Pt. Sour cream
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Kahlua
12 oz bag Semi sweet Chocolate Chips
Place mix in bowl & whisk in the pudding mix. Add all other ingredients one at a time except chocolate chips. Mix with electric mixer. Add chips to the mix before spooning into the bundt pan that has been sprayed with pam and then coat with flour. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on rack for 20 min. Then invert pan on rack so cake will slide out. Cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar. I also like to drizzle with chocolate syrup. Judy serves with Moose Tracks ice Cream, I like Vanilla Bean.
I wanted to share this recipe with you in memory of my dear friend Judy. It was a cake she brought to every event and party. Back in my scrapbooking days (if any of you from those days are following along you will remember this cake and Judy well) This cake is so decadent, rich and fit for a chocolate lover. So very Judy! You would think it took forever to make and had a million ingredients! She found out our oldest who didn’t like cake loved this cake, and she started making it for his birthday every year! One year she surprised me with the recipe! Not something she gave out freely:) It’s a recipe I will truly cherish along with her cranberry crush (I’ll share another time). I will be caring on her tradition by bringing it to parties and events. Judy was one of the classiest, talented, full of fun ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I feel very blessed to have shared many scrapbooking, shopping, birthdays and holidays with this beautiful person. Judy passed away last week and I will truly miss her. We shared a lot of the same loves and had even more in common. She was a mom of boys too, and yet so girly like I am. She loved a beautiful home, decorated every holiday perfectly and loved to entertain to the fullest. She treated her friends like family and made everyone feel special. Judy just might own more pairs of shoes then me…. well maybe not!:) We sure did have fun shopping for them together and we might have several of the same pairs, we even wore the same size! She lived her life to the fullest and was one tough cookie, the last few years she gave a good fight while still looking chic! To live until your 80 is amazing to do it with her class, chicness, strength and love is a gift to all those who knew her!
I will miss you Judy Lewis until we meet again my sweet friend. OX, D’Arcy
I know she would have pure pleasure knowing her cake will be enjoyed by many, so please make it, enjoy it and share a piece of Judy with your family. OX
