Chocolate Bourbon Bundt Cake.
Y’all know I’m a bourbon girl. Have been since college and we’re not going to talk about how LONG ago that way. I was NEVER (meaning still to this day) able to drink beer. I just can’t. So while I had my nose in the books in college I met Jack and Jim and so my love affair with the amber liquid began.
Our story is a long and loving one and they’ve since introduced me to more of their friends: Mark, Colonel Taylor, and a plethora of others. I’m a social butterfly what can I say.
I’ll throw whiskey into just about anything including CAKE. If you’re into chocolate and bourbon you’ll love this boozy bundtalicious beauty. It’s not only IN the cake it’s ON it too. We just can’t get enough of our WHISKEY CARAMEL SAUCE . We pronounce that care-a-mel around here and drizzle that on ALL the things as well. Including a spoon straight into our mouths. What? Like you’ve never done that. Pfft.
We also like the fact that we’re bringing back the bundt on this one. Grandma would be proud. I love bundt cakes. I mean they’ve already got the slice marks for you so you know exactly where to cut. HUGE help for those of us who are slicing challenged. Vintage, classic, whatever you call them, I call them GOOD. You can also lick the bowl on this batter with NO worries when you use Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs.
They are our go to eggs. Why? Davidson’s™ eggs are naturally pasteurized and eliminate the risk of Salmonella in recipes calling for raw or undercooked eggs. So go ahead lick the bowl, lick the beaters, lick the spoon and twirl yourself around the kitchen while you’re waiting on this baby to cook.
