Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you don’t have mini fluted tube cake pans, you can make one large cake instead. Use a 12-cup fluted tube cake pan and increase the baking time by about 30 minutes. Make sure to use a toothpick to check for doneness.
  • tip 2
    Garnish these Boozy Irish Whiskey Cakes with chopped nuts for extra flavor and crunchy texture.
  • tip 3
    If desired, you can make the sauce ahead of time and just reheat it prior to serving.
