One cake in particular is the top seller. Owner Amelia Stephens took a recipe from Southern Living magazine and tweaked it to make the Black Russian Cake.
This cake has secret ingredients that give it its name – vodka, along with a little Kahlua.
“I put liquor in a lot of my cakes,” Stephens said with a giggle. “It makes them really moist.”
It also makes the Black Russian Cake irresistible enough to earn a spot on the Alabama Tourism Department’s list of 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die.
Give it a try the next time you’re in Gulf Shores.
