Clink-Clink-Clink. A hint of celebration is in the air. Bubbly glasses, mirthy laughter, appropriate music and a promise of a great month – we’re beginning our month with a boozy treat. No. Wait. 15 different boozy cakes.
I baked a Tiramisu bundt cake with a Kahlua mascarpone glaze for our bundt-a-month theme – Boozy December. The cake captures the beautiful traditional flavors of the Italian dessert.
You can distinctly taste the espresso layer that blends perfectly with the Kahlua. But the glaze on it – the ultimate treat – a sweet concoction of Kahlua, mascarpone and sugar. To bring this to the right consistency, I added a couple of teaspoons of milk. (Click here for the recipe).
The cake has an even and well-packed crumb. I’ve baked it thrice and the recipe has been a hit every single time. The only tricky part of baking this cake is the getting swirl and layering correct. I recommend you be patient and do it slowly.
Don’t just pour it in chunks and spread with a spatula, instead take small dollops of batter. I used my cookie scoop to ensure an even distribution of the batter. The only layer you don’t need to be bothered about is the bottom layer – the espresso and Kahlúa batters are both have very different consistencies which makes it important to handle them carefully.
Over to the recipe: A moist cake with a tight crumb and a kick of espresso and Kahlua – could this be, the ultimate homemade dessert?
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ¾ cup butter, room temperature
- 1½ cups sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1½ cups milk
- ¼ cup espresso or very strong coffee
- ¼ cup Kahlúa
- Click here for the recipe.
- Preheat oven to 325F and generously grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking power and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light.
- Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
- Working in two or three additions, alternate adding the flour mixture and the milk large bowl, ending with an addition of flour, and mixing just until everything is incorporated.
- Remove 1 cup of the batter into a small bowl. Remove another cup of batter into a second small bowl.
- Add espresso to one of the small bowls and whisk until well-combined.
- Add Kahlua to the second small bowl and whisk until well combined.
- Pour half of the plain batter into the bundt pan and spread into an even layer. Pour the Kahlua batter into an even layer on top of the plain batter.
- Pour espresso batter on top of Kahlua batter. These batters maybe slightly thinner, but do not mix or stir them.
- Carefully spread all remaining plan batter into the bundt pan.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Let cake cool in pan for 15-20 minutes, then turn cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

I love your BuntaMonth theme going on. I’m going to have to dig out my bunt cake tin which is brand new and still not used yet *blush*.
I’m going to have to bookmark this and make it for the fella in my life. I, personally, dislike coffee (although strangly like the smell – that started when I got pregnant) but my partner is a coffee fiend and will love this.
Have a great weekend.
An, this cake looks amazing. I love the addition of the Kahlua, and that mascarpone glaze looks scrumptious. Happy #BAM! Pinned.
Thanks for hosting again this month! You outdid yourself with that beautiful glaze. Gorgeous!
Kahlua and mascarpone – oh yes! And what a pretty cake too. I am so very much enjoying BundtAMonth and all the cakes we get to see.
This cake is most certainly worth celebrating with :)

What a great idea! I love tiramisu and I’ve never seen it in bundt form. So creative! And I really like that you used mascarpone glaze instead of the run-of-the-mill confectioners’ sugar based glaze. Lovely!
Gorgeous! I love anything tiramisu flavor, and the glaze sounds good enough to drink.
If the tiramisu bundt didn’t draw me in, the kahlua mascarpone glaze got me hook, link and sinker. Fabulous looking bundt.
This is going to be a wonderful month :)
Now that sounds like one fantastic bundt cake!
Anu, this looks crazy good. Love bundt cakes.. never had one with kahlua glaze. All I can say is wow.
Gorgeous bundt! I love that glaze… I could eat it with a spoon. :)

Bundt cakes are one of my favorite parts about the holidays. I feel like they get made in abundance! In fact, I need to make something like this now! I’m sorry I’ve been so absent. Between moving (and feeling quite sick) I’m just now catching up to over a month of blog-reading! I hope you are doing well. It feels good to be back :-)
All of your bundt cakes recipes have my mouthwatering. I might have to go buy a mould this week;)
This looks so good. I love tiramisu and how could you go wrong with a bundt cake! Thanks for sharing!
Love that glaze! Not only does it sound delish, it looks so great. Super flavors in this – thanks so much.
What a pretty cake! I really like the kahlua mascarpone glaze. It’s all good!
Oh my word my friend! The idea of tiramisu as a bundt cake sounds devine! You glaze is beyond yum, it is holy cats!!!! Hugs, Terra
