    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    A fine loaf cake. Don't think it was that speck of bourbon that made them "hoot n holler". Perhaps it was something they took with it!!!!

    1/2 C Butter, softened
    1 C Sugar
    3 Large Eggs
    1 C All Purpose Flour
    1/2 teas Baking Powder
    1/4 teas Salt
    1/2 teas Ground Nutmeg
    1/4 C Milk
    1/4 C Molasses
    1/4 teas Baking Soda
    1/4 C Bourbon
    3/4 Lb. Raisins
    2 Cs Chopped Pecans

    Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy.
    Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    Combine next 4 ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients.
    Combine molasses and baking soda; add to creamed mixture.
    Stir in remaining ingredients.
    Pour into a greased and floured 9x5x3 inch loafpan. Bake at 300 degrees F. for 1 hr. and 55 min. or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
    Refrigerate cake for easier slicing.
    Yield 1 loaf

    NOTES: If you add some coconut this will be similar to Jack Daniels Tipsy cake.

    Wrap the cake in cheesecloth and pour about cup bourbon over it and let it set in refrigerator for a few days to enhance the flavor.
