Saint Patrick’s day is a boozy holiday.
Most people are not interested in alcohol in their baking so this is often a hard sell
But for those who don’t mind getting their cake a little drunk from time to time
Whiskey and Donuts may be right up your alley!
I always appreciate alcohol in my bakes as it lends another layer of flavor and depth to many cake recipe
Not to mention the alcohol bakes out
So you are left with a deep, complex, richness that only whiskey can impart
Another splash added to my Best Vegan Buttercream Recipe are you will transform your recipes for this holiday!
Be sure to use a good quality alcohol here not some bottom shelf cheap -O brand
I prefer Jameson for my whiskey bakes
Of course for those who do not do alcohol in any way shape or form, you can use all plant milk in place of the whiskey here.
Or coffee would be even better!
