I made this cake.... Delicious... used Traverse City Whiskey Co. American Cherry edition..... it gave it a little cherry flavor... I'm not a whiskey drinker but that brand is the best.....

You had me at whiskey.

Alcohol was used and drank..because the water in those days..not very healthy.

I you don't like or have whiskey you can use rum or brandy - both are excellent substitutes

If you don't like whiskey look for a different recipe

If you don't have wihiskey don't make the cake. You don't taste the whiskey, however, if you are an alcoholic or recovering alcoholic or if its because of religiosity, then make a chocolate cake. It is one of the best cakes Ive ever eaten. Whiskey is expensive and there are lots of other cakes to make without having to buy this one item. But, you will be missing out !

The alcohol is burnt off..with remaining taste of what ever you use.

What if I don't have whiskey, which is something I do no buy, is there a viable substitute in its place?

George Washington is a cousin of mine. U don't have to have children to have cousins. My daddy was an only child.

I used Brandy whiskey, was awesom!

Could you use Brandy instead of the whiskey?

I used rum in mine, why not brandy?

I used rum in mine, why not brandy?

I use brandy like it better
