i think i got this from fine cooking, but i'm not sure as i copied so many magazine recipes to try during this slow week at the office. in any event, with a few adaptions, this was delicious and quite easy to make using my kitchenaid mixer.

Wonderful recipe, I did cut back brown sugar by 1/3 cup then added 1/3 cup granulated sugar, increased but on to 1/2 cup, used 3-3x6 aluminum loaf pans , buttered and flowered, the flexibility of the pans made them easy to remove, 2 were gone in less then 24 hours, froze the third loaf.

Taste was good, but I had a really hard time trying to remove from the bundt pan. I never did get it removed. This is really upsetting. Apparently this is common in pound cakes, but I have never had an issue.

So moist! Such good flavor! A very dangerous cake to have around--so easy to slice off another sliver...The glaze is just right -- not too much, just the right touch of bourbon sweetness. This is a big cake--I halved the recipe and still had a substantial cake. The depth of flavor is such that it's hard to believe what a simple recipe this is. Thanks, Chia!
