A rich, fudgy bundt cake baked with Jack Daniel's in the batter and studded with chocolate chips, chopped pecans, raisins, maraschino cherries and candied pineapple pieces. I simply couldn't resist--can you? Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Adapted from Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House Cookbook.
