Frankly, I think this recipe was improved a whole lot by virtue of the fact that I refused to boil the mixture once I added the whiskey - what's the point of adding the alcohol to the glaze if you're just going to cook it off? In fact, I added extra whiskey, and it made for a very moist, flavorful cake with a little bit of a kick to it.

The bottom was moist, the top was not. Next time I'm going to poke holes in the cake, like the one of the reviewers suggested.

Really good cake that I made Friday night for Saturday's party so that the cake could really soak up all the flavor from the whiskey. Don't forget to poke some holes with a skewer before you pour on the liquor. While the kids were enjoying the gooey "photo" cake of our daughter I had made up at our local bakery, the big people were enjoying something a little more to their liking! Thanks Jamie!

Great grown up dessert! Delicious and flavorful, yet simple and not to heavy. Perfect for a light dessert or even a brunch item.

I used a good pound cake recipe in a Turk's head pan. I put some of the nuts in bottom of the pan, and made sure it was baked long enough!!! My glaze has 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup butter ...boil a few min. (do not stir) then add 1/4 cup whiskey. I used knitting needles to poke holes in the cake then poured the glaze over it. Let sit awhile then turn the cake out onto plate. Been doing this for almost 30 yrs.

This cake is very tasty! Next time, I might poke some holes in the cake so that the whisky runs inside it and not just on top. I will make it again very soon.

I've tweaked this recipe to make it my own, but AWESOME all by itself.

Very yummy. I used a lazy daisy cake recipe and poured the whiskey sauce over top and it turned out wonderfully.
