Jack Daniel's Tipsy Cake

Jack Daniel's Tipsy Cake created by chia2160

I wanted to post this so I don't ever lose it again. In college, my bestest friend, Alan, and I visited the Opryland Hotel with his parents at Christmas. In one of the gift shops in the hotel, they sell these, as well as at the little shop in Lynchburg. She served this cake and coffee after we got back to their place and opened presents. It was glorious (and not cheap by any means). So, I came home and started searching, playing, and experimenting. I found this through Google and it's exactly like what we had that night. If you're wondering what it's like..think chocolate-coffee-flavored cake on a bender. YUM!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350-375 degrees, depending on how your oven bakes (it's different for everyone!).
  • Melt chocolate and set aside to cool down a bit.
  • Dissolve the coffee granules in the boiling water. When dissolved, stir in the cold water. Add the whiskey and set aside.
  • In a large electric mixer, cream the butter, vanilla, and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the chocolate.
  • With the mixer on low, add the flour alternating with the coffee/whiskey mixture.
  • ****The batter WILL BE THIN & RUNNY.**** Do NOT add more flour.
  • Pour into two prepared loaf pans (I always make one small and one large-one to keep, one to give away.).
  • Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about an hour to an hour and a half. Cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when serving.

    Jack, Chocolate and Coffee no girl could ask for more. This smells so delicious when baking. Cake is moist and rich without being too sweet. LOVE IT thanks so much for sharing.
