Irish Whiskey Cake: Two Great Tastes. One Great Irish Expression!
When we first tried Irish whiskey cake we were doubtful.
Would the flavors 'work' together? Could you taste the whiskey? After trying it, we knew the answers were 'yes' and 'yes!'
Since then it has become one of our favorite ways to express our
Irish side at almost any occasion, with or without an Irish theme.
Let's have a look at a couple variations of this delicious dessert.
And if this makes you hungry for many more Irish desserts, please visit our main page on Irish desserts here.
