'My Milkshake' Bundt Cake

My Milkshake Bundt Cake
You're singing it too, aren't you...?

Oh hardshakes, how I love thee so... I adore a good milkshake, so imagine the joy I expressed when those clever little cocktail chemists at All Star Lanes started putting booze in theirs? They do this amazing concoction called a Honey Whiskey Hardshake; a wonderful mix of thick ice cream, Jack Daniels Honey, and their home made ginger syrup. I can drink one in around five minutes, the only thing hindering my speed being brain-freeze.

I wanted to make my friend Tasha a bundt for being an all round superstar, and this was the first thing that came to mind. Ginger and bourbon go so bloody well together. I'm just pleased that I gave this cake away, otherwise I'd have scoffed the lot with perhaps three cups of tea. It's doable, believe me.

Tasha with her bundt!
  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tsp ginger
  • 250ml vanilla yoghurt 
  • 50ml Jack Daniels 
  • 2 tbsp runny honey 

  • 500g icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp Jack Daniels
  • Milk Bottle sweets to decorate

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3/160 c
  2. Prepare a regular sized bundt tin - 2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch with melted butter and dust with flour.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
  5. Add the vanilla extract.
  6. In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and ginger.
  7. Pour the yoghurt into a jug, and add the Jack Daniels.
  8. Sift in a third of the flour mix followed by half the yoghurt. Repeat this until everything is combined. 
  9. Give everything a quick mix on a low speed for about 10 seconds.
  10. Pour the mix into your prepared tin. 
  11. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. 
  12. Leave the cake to cool for ten minutes before removing from the tin.
  13. When completely cool, mix the icing sugar with the remaining Jack Daniels and honey. Add a little water to make your icing of pouring consistency. 
  14. Tip it over your cake.
  15. I sprinkled mine with a little gold glitter and filled it with Milk Bottle sweets sprayed gold. Bling-a-ding-ding...
