    Re: Bourbon Pound Cake

    i might try this soon!

    at school we had a thanksgiving potluck...

    i took a Trader Joe's Orange and Cranberry bread but added an ingredient: a good dose of ELIJAH CRAIG 12...and it gave the bread a more 'rum-cake' texture...stickier. glad to say it was a hit.

    someone else had homemade cranberry sauce...but with cognac added! never heard of that, but it was stout...i called it a 'pilgrim jello shot'....
    HUP!

    I guess I got lucky, my wife likes bourbon, last night she had some Stagg, neat.
    I waited until she had a few sips then I let her see the proof on the label, she couldn't belive it.
    Also Centennial is her favorite.

    Re: Bourbon Pound Cake

    I just pulled the first of two loaf's out of the oven. Poured over the glaze and took a sample. Yeeeeeeeuuuuummmy. My mother in law is over and we were shoving down pieces of the bourbon loaf. My wife tried and spit it out...."I can taste the bourbon..yuck".

    Great recipe, easy to make and delicious. I used Maker's Mark bourbon.

    Re: Bourbon Pound Cake

    Emerald, whipped up one of these this past weekend... used some current OF Prime 80PF ....per your wheater suggestion. Damn good pound cake. I find pound cakes freeze quite well in serving size pieces. We polished off about 1/2 the cake and had to freeze the rest or it would have been gone.
