Being a bonified Kentucky Gal, Ky Bourbon Pecan Cake was a very anticipated treat of the Christmas season. Mom always made them...I say them because she made several to give as gifts...the weekend after Thanksgiving and they soaked in bourbon until served Christmas through New Years. It's not your regular fruitcake because it only has pecans, red candied cherries and raisins, not all that other yucky candied fruit that, in my opinion, gives fruitcake a bad rap. When made this way, it WILL change your mind on how delicious a GOOD fruitcake can be. Be generous in the soaking and use really good bourbon, not the cheapstuff because you WILL taste it. I'm making mine this weekend!
