I've seen resurrection cakes and whiskey sauces in many old southern cookbooks. This is the one that evolved in my family. Not sure if it orginally came from one of those southern cookbooks. But boy! Is it good.

How to Make Resurrection Cake with Whiskey Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. For the cake:
    Mix as directed on the cake box.
  2. Pour batter into a deep greased cake pan.
  3. Pour a pint of stewed fruit over the top. Our family liked pears and peaches.
  4. Cover the top with pats of butter. Don't be stingey.
  5. Sprinkle with a good coat of sugar.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes - cake should rise and cover fruit with a brown crust.
  7. For the Whiskey Sauce:

    Completely blend butter, vanilla and sugar.
  8. Add whiskey a little at a time (and to your taste) into blended sugar combination.
  9. The sauce should be loose and creamy with the sugar being a little grainy.
  10. Pour over resurrection cake.
