Jack Daniel's Cake

"This has been my 24 year old son's favorite and most requested cake since he was about 10 - he is a butterscotch lover. It is really good - make sure you get the bottom/topping - it's what makes the cake! Being from Texas, I usually use pecans instead of walnuts. NOTE: If you want to use an electric mixer, be careful to not overbeat the cake."

    I made this for a birthday party and it was a hit! I tried to cut calories a bit and used egg substitute and sugar free pudding. I used my mixer a bit to combine the cake mix, pudding and wet ingredients. The mix was thick due to the pudding. I used a spoon to mix in the nuts and chips. The batter needs to be spread out in the pan. I cooked it for 45 mins and it was great. A sure keeper recipe.

    Happy husband. (And a great way to use up all that Jack I bought for his rib glaze!) I totally didn't beat it by hand, lazy. Went slow and steady on my mixer. Turned out fine for me. I only had to bake 40 min. Used pecans in place of walnuts.

    I used pecans instead of walnuts and baked this in a sheet pan. Wonderful. Next time I will use a bundt cake pan. Made for PAC 2008.
