{sms} speakeasy, another boozy cake

Brandy. The one type of alcohol I do not have in my pantry and the type needed for this week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe: Speakeasy, aka a boozy cake with chocolate. I have scotch, armagnac, cognac, rum (3 types), tequila, vodka (um, 8 types), Bailys, Kahlua, Frangelico, Applejack, Amaretto, triple sec, midori, gin, Calvados, Kirsch, Grand Marnier, and bourbon (2 types).

Without a pressing need to another bottle of liquor to my collection, I subbed in bourbon. The cake batter was easy to throw together especially with Diego assisting. Instead of making a full recipe, I halved it and baked two mini cakes.

Thanks to Jeannette of The Whimsical Cupcake for hosting this week. For the recipe, visit her blog or buy the book.

  1. Diego looks like he’s hard at work there! Fun to have baking assistants :) We have almost no liquor at home, but I’m at the in-laws this week, and luckily they keep a well-stocked cabinet!
