  • Combine cake mix, pudding mixes, and 1/2 cup walnuts in a large bowl.

  • Whisk 1/2 cup Irish whiskey, milk, and oil together in a separate bowl. Whisk in eggs. Pour over cake mixture and stir until blended. Divide batter among the prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in brown sugar. Add remaining walnuts, 1 tablespoon whiskey, and water. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in remaining whiskey.

  • Cool cakes for 5 minutes before inverting a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Use a toothpick to poke small holes across the tops. Pour whiskey topping over cakes and leave to soak in as they cool.

Very good boozy cake a bit on the strong side but delicious regardless. Despite having to use 15.25 oz cake mix (they don't make the 18.5 any longer) and the pudding boxes were 3.5 oz instead of 3.9 oz (because I could not find that size) it all came together perfectly. I chose to make a bundt cake and baked it for 55 minutes. Next time I will cut the Irish Whiskey to 1/2 - 3/4 cups. Read More
