Serves 8-10 | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup milk - can use 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup sorghum or molasses
1/4 cup Tennessee Whiskey, such as Jack Daniel's or George Dickel

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Beat butter using a mixer at medium speed; gradually add sugars and beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl.

3. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add to egg mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Stop mixer and add sorghum or molasses. Restart mixer and slowly add whiskey. Mix until smooth, about 30 seconds. (Batter will be thin.)

4. Pour into a greased 9-inch springform pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
