Happy Holidays From FanHouse: Here's a Present for You
This blog is probably not the best place to celebrate religious expression, so instead I will focus on the sports, presents, food and drink part of the holiday season.
You are reading this, obviously, so you are getting your sports fix on here at FanHouse.
There is the FanHouse main page, and then all the FanHouse sports subcategories to the left of the page, where you can get the latest word on different sports stuff. If you have any thoughts about all things FanHouse, please email our editors using the link either to the left or on top. They'd love to hear from you.
As a special holiday present to all of the readers, even the ones who call us reindeer names, I will give you an awesome recipe for an Irish Whiskey Cake that combines the best of food and alcohol. It's my buddy Brendan's recipe, and it will change your life for the better. Trust me, I'm your friend.
Yeah, typically, we don't discuss baked goods here, but this recipe is idiot proof and absolutely delicious and makes your house smell insanely good. Be the hero of your tailgate or bowl party, or just impress your friends and family with your mad baking skillz. Send the recipe to your mom to show you are thinking about her -- you know, of her baking you a cake.
So let me get all Rachel Ray on you:
Irish Whiskey Cake That Will Change Your Life for the Better
From Your Kind Friends at FanHouse (courtesy of Brendan)
1 Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
1 4 oz package Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1/2 cup Irish Whiskey (NOT regular whiskey. I use Bushmills).
3/4 cup Crisco Oil
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Bake in a well-greased (use cooking spray) bundt pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (For those of you who are baking impaired, this is what a bundt cake looks like).
Let it rest for an hour, put a big plate on top, and then turn it onto the plate. Dust with powdered sugar if you want it to look fancy.
Do yourself a favor and hit the "Email This" link at the bottom of this post and either send this recipe to yourself or to someone who likes to bake and wants to bake stuff for you. Really, I'm not kidding. If you don't eat this cake, you will be very sad indeed. If you are one of the strange people who don't like baked goods, well, then count this as your present.
So, did you get any fun presents this year? Other than a bundt cake recipe you have to go buy ingredients for immediately?
