With two full cups of bourbon whiskey and a pound of chopped pecans, this is one dessert you won't be able to say "no" to. It's simply irresistible.

Cooking Time: 2 hr 30 min

  • 3/4 pound butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 6 eggs
  • 5 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon mace (spice)
  • 2 cups bourbon whiskey
  • 3 1/2 cups pecan nuts, chopped (about 1 pound)
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Cream butter and approximately half of each of the sugars together.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining sugars until light and fluffy (several minutes, at least).
  4. Combine the butter and egg mixtures.
  5. Sift the dry ingredients and add them along with the whiskey a little at a time to the egg/butter mixture.
  6. Stir pecans into the batter.
  7. Bake in a large (10-inch) tube type pan for approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until a knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  8. Once the cake has completely cooled, wrap in foil and keep in the fridge for a week or two to let the flavors meld.
  9. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.
