Preheat oven to 350ÂF and grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cake mix, brown sugar, white sugar, and pudding mix.
Add the eggs, coffee, oil, and 3/4 cup of Kahlua and beat with an electric mixer until well combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips and pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
While the cake is baking, make the glaze by melting the butter and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until smooth and then stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of Kahlua.
Poke holes all over the top of the cake with a toothpick or a skewer while it is still hot and in the pan.
Slowly drizzle the glaze over the cake and let it soak in.
Let the cake cool slightly in the pan before inverting it onto a serving plate.
Tips for Making the Best Kahlua Crack Cake
You can use any brand of chocolate cake mix that you like, but make sure it has pudding in the mix for extra moisture.
You can also use any flavor of instant pudding that you prefer, such as vanilla or chocolate fudge.
If you don't have coffee, you can use water instead, but coffee enhances the flavor of chocolate and Kahlua.
You can use semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips for this cake, or even white chocolate chips for a contrast.
You can omit the nuts if you have an allergy or don't like them. You can also use pecans instead of walnuts if you prefer.
You can make this cake ahead of time and store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months. Just let it thaw at room temperature before serving.
