Made 2 for a Derby party and there wasn't a crumb left. Everyone loved it (even the guys) and wanted the recipe (even the guys!). Easy to make and less calories than you'd expect from something so sinfully delicious. Definitely a winner!Read More
This recipe goes perfectly with Derby Day's festivities, especially complementing the mint juleps and (sometimes) the bourbon marinated pork loin. To anyone thinking this a "lady dessert," (and I have had my share of some frilly insipid desserts at which I internally gagged,) I suggest that he has the palate of a canine and deserves dog food. This torte has a lovely texture and surprisingly subtle flavors. I did substitute real whipped cream with a bit of powdered sugar incorporated and I think it improves the dish.
Good grief momshome. A lady dessert? You said you thought the cake was "yummy" yet you rated with only one star. Does your opinion not count? Maybe you should remake the cake for your husband using beer...have him eat the whole thing and belch all night. That might make it a man dessert.Read More
Best part of our KY Derby dinnerRead More
I agree with Bruce about this not being a "lady dessert." What kind of bourbon did you use? Apparently, it wasn't Kentucky Bourbon. You could always decrease the milk and increase the bourbon, if our husband needs his dessert stronger. lol ;+) BTW: The cake is wonderful, made many times and never a bite left. This Kygirl is giving this recipe 5 stars!Read More
I haven't tried this recipe, but rated it with 5 stars. I think the one single rating of one star seems totally unfair... and hence gave it 5 stars to negate that one rating. The 'rater' said that she liked it. Why give it one measly start because her husband said it was 'a lady cake'. What the heck is a lady cake anyway? Stand up for yourself woman! Your opinion counts. At this point I give YOU one star.Read More
Made this, I thought YUMMY, my husband said it was a 'lady dessert'.... I think he's right! Dump the bourbon, add flavoring extract of choice & serve at a ladies evening. My husand would rather have something substantial, a 2-layer cake or assorted bakery...but that's him. Maybe a re-make of this recipe would help...just my suggestion!Read More
