This is a fabulous cake. Funny, the bourbon in it mellowed out and it has quite the praline taste to it. I put a bourbon flavored glaze on it, and that really truly was the "icing on the cake" haha. 1/3 cup melted butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar, and 3 tablespoons of bourbon. Can't give this recipe enough accolades~!!!
so delicious! I didn't change anything and made this in a bundt pan. Absolutely delicious!
Fantastic! I made this last week using some of the nice Maker's Mark bourbon I'd bought. Very easy to put together. I divided the batter into 2 loaf pans and then added the pecans to one pan as we have some nut allergies to contend with. The only issue I had was deciding when enough baking was enough. At one hour the centers were still pretty goopy, so I kept going another 5 minutes at a time. Finally after probably 15 more minutes I took them out as they were as brown as I could deal with on the oustides, yet still a bit less cooked in the middle than I'd hoped. Cooled, wrapped and refrigerated them and found the texture to be just fine when we tried some. My finacé threatened to pick up the loaf and just gnaw on it. Great recipe.
Wow, this was great! It was truly delicious and got rave reviews from the family. Wonderful cake, thanks!
This is my second time making it and everyone goes crazy over it. I am a excellent cook. C
