Whiskey (Cake) in the Jar

Hello Friends :)

 I'm back!!! I am getting better every day and I have returned to my day job as well as performing with the Avon Repertory Company (whee!). It is my fervent hope that the Flu was the final illness of this winter, and God Willing, I will stay healthy :) The only downside to recovering is the fact that I have to wade through everything that went undone while I was sick. So, alas, I've had very little time to cook, or blog, but I'm getting back in the swing :) As my offering for Saint Patrick's Day, I was going to post a recipe for Irish Coffee. However, yesterday I was checking my blog roll and the amazing Heather over at Sprinkle Bakes (a blog devoted ENTIRELY to baked goods *swoon*), had posted a recipe for Irish Whiskey Cake baked in canning jars, thus making it *Whiskey in the Jar Cake*. I'm sorry folks, but for this week, Sprinkle Bakes wins over me. These cakes look adorable and delicious. I'm reposting this here because, frankly, I would be doing you all a disservice if I didn't call this cake and this yummy blog to your attention. I looove the idea of baking individual cakes into jars. As Heather points out, they're very convenient to give as gifts. However, if you don't have canning jars on hand, she also includes instructions for baking the cake in a 10" bundt pan. In a few days I'll post my recipe for Irish Coffee, but for now, go bask in the glory of Sprinkle Bakes :)

Enjoy :)
