Hi everyone! I've been scouring the net for a good whiskey cake recipe but none of them really jump out at me! Can anyone suggest a decent recipe? Am making this for an irishman, and I'm not a big whiskey fan! Anyone?

Basically a nice cake recipe then after it being baked add whiskey ( just enough to give that whiskey hint ) by drizzling some over the top and allow to soak a little.

A chocolate kahlua cake recipe is posted but imagine whiskey can be used.

Chocolate Kahlua Cake
450g butter
450g brown sugar
1 cup golden syrup
6 eggs
1 ½ tsp vanilla
450g flour
1 cup cocoa
3 tsp baking powder
1 ½ cup milk
Cream butter, brown sugar and golden syrup.
Add vanilla and then eggs one at a time.
Sift together dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and then add to creamed mixture alternately with the milk.
Bake in a 26cm tin at 170 C for 40 mins or until stick comes out clean.
Pour ¼ cup of Kahlua over the cake (or more depending on your taste preference)
Top with chocolate ganache.

200 mil cream
2 tablespoons butter
230 grams chocolate chopped small.
A block of Choc whilst still sealed in package slammed a few times on the bench will break into smaller pieces.

Put cream and butter into saucepan and heat until just below boiling point.
Remove from heat add chocolate and stir until melted and all is smooth in texture.
Leave for a few minutes until it starts to thicken.
Place the cake on a large serving dish by inverting cake from rack.
Slowly pour over the Choc Ganache evenly all over the cake, allowing excess to drip or run down all sides.
Allow to set completely cooled, can be refrigerated.

1 ¾ cups Sugar
3 large eggs
1 Tablespoon fresh Lemon Rind, grated

Preheat oven to 180c.
Grease a 25cm Tube tin or Bundt Tin.
In large bowl, beat together butter, cream cheese until well blended.

Drizzle rum over cooled cake slowly, allowing for absorption before drizzling on the rest of rum.

Nice served with a dollop of whipped cream.

Oh, instead of Kahlua - try Irish Cream Whiskey like Bailey's or Canterbury Cream.
