The recipe comes from the "Jack Daniel's Hometown Celebration Cook Book" Volume II. I have forgotten what page the recipe is on. My book opens to that page on it's own, it's been used so many times. My cookbook also has coffee and whisky stains, it's been used so much! :)<br/><br/>http://www.amazon.com/Jack-Daniels-Hometown-Celebration-Cookbook/dp/1558530851/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408300369&sr=8-1&keywords=Jack+Daniels+Hometown+Celebration+Cookbook
Awesome! This was husband's birthday cake and he loved it. I it garnished with a dusting of powdered sugar topped by swirled mounds of whipped cream holding chocolate letters spelling HAPPY BIRTHDAY all around the top of the cake. It looked great and tasted fabulous. Really easy to make, too.
I made this cake last night and it's REALLY good! Quite a subtle taste of JD, but it's just enough mixed with the chocolate flavour.
Had a taste test when it came out of the oven - 10/10
Had another taste test this morning (just in case it went bad overnight!!) - 10/10
Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I didn't love this...but I didn't hate it. I don't like Jack, and like more fluffy, light cakes. However everyone else that tried it LOVED it. It was very dense and moist. The pecans were a nice touch. I just dusted it with powdered sugar and served as is. Ice cream would have been tasty with it too though. Thanks for posting!
I made mini bunt hearts with this for Valentines. I filled the little heart depression on top with caramel and surrounded the heart cakes with chocolate whipped cream. WOW these were great. Used the rest of the batter to make mini cupcakes for the office, decorated with buttercream icing and various heart candies and sprinkles. I would highly recommend this
My husband is crazy about Jack Daniels so i had to try this. Excellent. He is going to love this cake. It is very heavy so all i did was dust it with powdered sugar. Presentation is very nice.
