For a cake with a kick, just add Jim Beam® Bourbon. Visiting and touring this iconic distillery – either the American Stillhouse in Clermont or Urban Stillhouse in Louisville – is a classic Kentucky experience. Bring home a bottle and whip up this delicious dessert to remember your trip by.


  • 1 cup Jim Beam® Bourbon
  • 1 pound confectioner's sugar
  • 1 pound chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 pound butter
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 cups flour
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 8 ounces chopped dates
  • 8 ounces raisins


Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Beat until smooth. Add flour, soda, baking powder and nutmeg alternately with Jim Beam® Bourbon and molasses. Mix in raisins, dates and pecans. Bake at 275 degrees for one hour in 10-inch tube pan.
