Makes: 8 servings

Prep: 30 mins

Bake: 35 mins

  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup Tennessee whiskey, such as Jack Daniel's
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
  • Chocolate sauce, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
  2. Using a standing mixer, beat the butter at medium-high speed until creamy; gradually add the brown and granulated sugars and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. On low speed, beat in the flour mixture, one-third at a time, alternating with the milk and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix in the molasses on medium-low speed. Mix in the whiskey until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased, parchment-paper-lined 10-inch cake pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool.
  4. Serve the cake with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and candied pecans, if using.
