Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Cake

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Cake
Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Cake. No matter what is going on, I think we can all agree on cake. Especially when it’s chocolate cake with pecans and drizzled with WHISKEY CARAMEL SAUCE. It’s a show stopper for sure. It’s big, bold, and beautiful (is that a soap opera? I don’t watch a lot of tv anymore but that sounds familiar). I’m always for cake. Always.

This one though, you won’t be needing a giant wedge. A little sliver of slice will suffice. It’s deeply decadent. It also let’s me feel like less of a piglet and that’s always a good thing. Not that I’m opposed to a giant slice of cake, when it’s on the lighter side, because y’all, I am an eater after all.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Cake

It’s why I workout. It’s the ONLY reason I work out. I’ve said it many times before and I’ll say it again. I workout so I can eat all the things. Again and again. It’s just maintaining.

There are no gains for me, or  more like losses but I’m okay with that as long as I can eat cake and still fit in my pants. Or unbutton them so I can eat a smidge more at the time. Don’t act like you haven’t done that. It happens and I just want you to know it’s okay.

So make a batch of our WHISKEY CARAMEL SAUCE, because you’ll need it for the cake plus you’ll want to drizzle on all the things or just eat directly out of the jar with a spoon, it’s that good. It also makes incredibly holiday gifts. I’m all for edible homemade gifts, or bourbon, bourbon works too.

Then grab your cake pans and head over to Dixie Crystal’s site for the CHOCOLATE BOURBON PECAN CAKE RECIPE.

And save me a slice ; ) It’s only polite.
