Frankly, I think this recipe was improved a whole lot by virtue of the fact that I refused to boil the mixture once I added the whiskey - what's the point of adding the alcohol to the glaze if you're just going to cook it off? In fact, I added extra whiskey, and it made for a very moist, flavorful cake with a little bit of a kick to it.


Really good cake that I made Friday night for Saturday's party so that the cake could really soak up all the flavor from the whiskey. Don't forget to poke some holes with a skewer before you pour on the liquor. While the kids were enjoying the gooey "photo" cake of our daughter I had made up at our local bakery, the big people were enjoying something a little more to their liking! Thanks Jamie!


Great grown up dessert! Delicious and flavorful, yet simple and not to heavy. Perfect for a light dessert or even a brunch item.
