DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  • Fold in half the flour, then fold in the milk, then the remaining flour, followed by the bourbon and vanilla.
  • Pour the batter into two lightly greased and floured 9-inch loaf pans and run the blade of a knife through the batter in an X pattern from corner to corner of the pans to eliminate air bubbles.
  • Place the pans in the center of a cool oven, leaving a space between them.
  • Turn the oven to 325F and bake for about 1 hour, until a wooden skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Turn off the oven and let the cakes cool in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Open the oven door and cool for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the cakes out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
