Scotch Whiskey Cake Recipe

Scotch Whiskey cake recipe

Rebecca and Rosie of Honeywell Bakes are here with a sumptuous cake to warm you up this frigid winter!

This cake is not just for whiskey lovers -- we don’t really like to drink whiskey, but this cake is delicious! It's moist, filled raisins and has a sweet, buttery-whiskey flavor that is to die for.

We like to eat it as part of Burns Night here in the UK.  A "Burns supper" is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scottish poems. The suppers are on or around the poet's birthday (Burns night), January 25th, and typically include haggis (a traditional Scottish dish), Scotch whisky, and the recitation of Burns' poetry.

Poke holes in the top of the cake using a skewer, and then pour the drizzle over whilst still warm. Allow to cool completely.

Scotch Whiskey cake recipe To make the icing (frosting), put the butter into a heavy bottomed pan and melt, then, stirring all the time, allow to bubble until it turns golden brown.

Let it cool until just warm, then mix in the icing sugar and whiskey until it forms a smooth paste.

Spoon on top of your cake and let it drip down the sides a bit.
