Porter Cake with Whiskey Sauce
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Use Porter or Guinness ales, or Irish whiskey.
1 cup unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Soften butter 1 minute in microwave on half power. In electric mixer beat in the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Add the porter and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients and blend in the fruits. Add to the cake batter. Butter and flour a 9 by 3 1/2 inch cake pan, or a 10-12 cup bundt style pan, and pour in the batter. Bake at 325 for 1 1/2 hours, or until cake tests done. Allow to cool in pan on a rack for at least 30 minutes, then loosen and invert onto a platter. Serve with the whiskey sauce.
