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!
This cake is out of this world!! I just made it today for the first time and it received rave reviews from my guests(the always on a diet type)!!!!! Not a morsel was left. I can't wait to bake it again. Thanks for posting it. :)
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!
