Every year for Christmas an old co-worker of my mother sends these Whiskey cakes to her and they are absolutely fabulous; this year she chose to share her recipe with us.

These little cakes can be made in decorative Christmas loaf pans and given as Holiday gifts; they ship well and last forever.

NOTE: I did find this recipe a short time ago in a cookbook "For Woman Who Hate To Cook"
