George Dickel® Tennessee Sippin’ Whisky Cake
Recipe courtesy of thebar.com
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 box yellow cake mix
1 6 1/2 to 7 ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
1⁄2 cup cold water
1⁄2 cup corn oil
4 large eggs, room temperature
1⁄2 cup George Dickel® Tennessee Whisky
1 stick unsalted butter
1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons George Dickel® Tennessee Whisky
Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour a 10-inch bunt pan. Sprinkle chopped nuts over bottom of pan. Thoroughly mix all remaining cake ingredients together. Pour batter over nuts. Bake until a tester inserted into the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cake cool and invert onto serving dish.
For Glaze: Melt butter in a small saucepan. Blend in sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly stir in whisky.
With toothpick, prick top of cake. Slowly pour small amount of glaze over top and sides, allowing cake to completely absorb glaze; repeat until all glaze is used.
TIP: Try making this cake a day or two before your party. The flavor will deepen and make it that much richer.
