How to make it

  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, 1/2 cup Irish
  • whiskey, and oil, add eggs and beat at medium speed of an
  • electric mixer for 4 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as
  • necessary.
  • Spoon into a greased and floured 10-inch bundt or
  • tube pan.
  • Bake in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees) for 45 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • When cake is almost done, prepare syrup.
  • Combine sugar, butter, water, and lemon juice in a small heavy saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil slowly, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1/4 cup Irish whiskey
  • or bourbon.
  • Turn cake out onto two large sheets of aluminum
  • foil placed together to form the shape of a cross.
  • Let cake cool for 10 minutes, top side up for tube cake and upside down for bundt cake.
  • Using a skewer or long bamboo pick, make holes all over top and sides of hot cake.
  • Drizzle syrup very slowly over cake, being careful that too much does not run into any cracks on top of cake.
  • Bring foil up around cake and wrap securely.
  • Cake may be served when completely cool, or store in an airtight container overnight.
  • Cake may be wrapped securely in foil and stored in the refrigerator for several weeks or in a freezer for up to six months.
  • Serve with whipped cream.
