Bourbon Cake

A cocktail in Louisville inspired this rich cake, and it’s a big hit. We mix top-shelf bourbon, cherries, a bit of almond and a good splash of root beer into an 8-inch ring cake topped with a royal icing glaze.

“The booze in the Red Truck bourbon cake is pronounced yet not too strong; the flavor mix sounds wacky but it really works: the root beer subdues the bourbon, and the cherry/almond undertones add sweet depth and dimension.” —Southern Living magazine

Started in a Virginia farmhouse over 30 years ago, Brian Noyes’ Red Truck Bakery is one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 13 Destination Bakeries in America. Named after the red 1954 Ford truck Brian used to deliver his rustic baked goods to local country stores, Red Truck Bakery has gained a cult-like following that includes Oprah and former President Barack Obama—with Roadfood’s Jane & Michael Stern being among some of their loudest and proudest early supporters.
