Death by Chocolate & Tequila Cake
   from Pine Creek Style

  1. 1 box of cake mix, *triple chocolate flavor
  2.  eggs & cooking oil, according to directions on the Cake mix box
  3.  Unflavored coffee, cold
  4. Coffee tequila liqueur 
  5. cream cheese 
  6. powdered sugar
  7. butter, softened
  8. small amount of granulated sugar for dusting.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees or as directed on the box.  Prepare your cake pan, bundt or 9" round, with cooking spray and a small amount of sugar to dust the pan.  *Sugar  dusting works well and adds to the flavor of the cake!

Please read direction throughly before baking. 

Use cake mix directions as your guide.  But, substitute the liquids (other than the cooking oil) with cold coffee and coffee tequila liqueur.  For example: if your box calls for 1 cup of water, replace with 2/3's cup of cold coffee and 1/3 cup of coffee tequila liqueur.  Continue with the box instructions as directed.

If your cake mix includes a chocolate pouch to use as a filling, prepare as directed. *my box called for 1/3cup of water.  I replaced that with 1/6 cup of cold coffee and 1/6 cup of the liqueur. Mix according to directions .

Fold your cake into your prepared pan and bake according to the cake box instructions.  When done, let rest for about 15-20 minutes before turning out onto your desired cake plate.

Icing on the cake:

 There are glaze pouches available at the grocery for purchase.  To save time I used a chocolate glaze.  Follow instructions and apply to the cake.  I then added a quick homemade tequila butter icing: 1 cube of soften butter, 4 ounces of softened cream cheese, 1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of coffee tequila liqueur.  Cream together and pipe, drizzle or swirl on top of the cake and glaze.

To finish: With a cheese grater, shave a solid chocolate bar over the top, amount as desired. You may use, white, milk or dark chocolate. Chocolate candy swirls may also be made & used for the topping.
