I made this cake for the guys in my office on St. Patrick's Day. It was a hit! I did adapt it somewhat to make it a little lighter. I used 4 eggs, 1/3 cup Becel oil, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup whiskey, 1/3 cup water. I only used half a package of butterscotch chips and 1 cup chopped walnuts. I baked the cake in a bundt pan and when cool, I pierced the top with a fork. I then took the reserved chips and walnuts added a Tbsp water and melted the chips(along with the walnuts) in the microwave. I stirred in a little icing sugar and 1 more Tbsp of the whiskey to make a glaze. Then I spooned the glaze over the cake and let it set. It was scrumptious! The glaze makes the cake - you get the whiskey without the alcohol being baked out of it, but only a taste! Slainte! Kat

I thought this cake was just ok. The butterscotch chips became sort of hard (I used Nestle), and at 50 minutes, the cake was very brown. I wish I had checked it at 40 minutes.

I made this cake for a group of friends. It was delicious!! One of the best things about it besides the flavor is that you SHOULD make it a day or two before you serve it. It only gets moister.

This is a great cake! SO much better the day after, so plan ahead. I used pecans instead of walnuts - just a personal preference. I was given this recipe by a friend, and it said to reserve 1/2 cup (each) of the chips and nuts for the top of the cake instead of 1/4 (each) - I think I like that better. Thanks for the recipe!

I substituted a 10oz. bag of toffee bits for the butterscotch chips and was very pleased with the results. The candy pieces carmelized underneath the cake. It was delicious!

My Mother in law makes a similar cake. I made this twice. I used chopped cherries, mini chocolate chips and walnuts. I omitted the milk and used Captin Morgan's Spiced Rum. Excellent. I agree with others on the butterscotch chips. It made a mess of my pan. Dust it with powdered sugar and you are good to go. This is a great recipe for all those shaped bundt pans. Use baker's secret spray.

THis cake was really good. I didnt put the nuts in it cuz my husband hates nuts but turned out just as well. Looking back I noticed I used all the butterscotch chips for the cake and forgot to add any on top but it was still wonderful. Sprinkled with powdered sugar. Great!
