Bourbon+Cake=Awesome

7 Jul

I made cake last weekend. With booze.

And then added more booze on top. And ice cream. It was awesome.

I made a Bourbon Peach Pound Cake with Drunk Peaches and ice cream.

You should make this. Now. Like, right now. Or come to my house and I will make it and you can eat it because if you don’t I will eat every bite.

I wish I had a picture for you but I am impatient and could not wait for the cake to cook before I put it in my cake-hole and so I had to shove it back in the pan and back in the oven and it was not very camera ready. But it was very delicious.

It tastes like…awesome. And drunk. Tastes like drunk.

Bourbon Peach Pound Cake with Drunk Peaches

Bourbon Peach Pound Cake

4 cups of all purpose flour

3 cups of sugar (I used 1 cup dark brown, 1 cup light brown, 1 cup regular)

4 sticks of butter softened

1/4 cup of buttermilk

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup (+) bourbon

6 large eggs

vanilla

cinnamon

2 1/2 cups of diced fresh peaches (took about 4)

Layer all ingredients except peaches in a bowl in order and mix thoroughly. Add peaches. Mix some more. Bake at 325 until done. All the way done. Not halfway done like mine. A knife should come out clean when inserted in the middle.

Drunk Peaches

1 cup bourbon

1 cup  brown sugar

3 ripe peaches sliced

Boil bourbon, sugar and peaches in a saucepan until thickened and liquid reduces. Syrupy deliciousness results. Store in a jar in the refrigerator.

I like these over cake with ice cream on top or just over ice cream. Husband likes them in bowl with a spoon.

Please invite me over when you make this. Thank you.
