GEORGE DICKEL TENNESSEE SIPPIN' WHISKEY CAKE
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped walnuts
6 1/2 oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup corn oil
1/2 cup George Dickel Sourmash Bourbon whiskey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12-inch Bundt pan. Put nuts in bottom of pan and then mix remaining ingredients with electric mixer until well mixed, about 3 minutes. Pour over nuts. Bake for about 1 hour.
Let cake cool and invert onto serving dish. Prick top and sides with toothpick.
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup George Dickel whiskey
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
In small pan melt butter. Blend in sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool for a few minutes and then add George Dickel. Slowly pour small amount of glaze over top and sides allowing time for cake to completely absorb glaze.
"Reddish amber hue. Spicy toffee and walnut nose with a whiff of charcoal. A robust entry leads to a faintly sweet medium-bodied palate with treacle, nuts, and spicy oak elements. Finishes with caramle, rancio, and a brash wave of brown spices. An extroverted Tennessee whisky."-(tastings.com)
