I always get the itch to bake when Fall comes, when warm breads and spiced flavors are inviting again. And who better to turn to for a new (to me) recipe than Martha Stewart. I whipped up this Sweet Potato Bourbon Bundt Cake with Bourbon Syrup and was not disappointed in the least. The cake’s brown sugar and sweet potato notes meld perfectly with the moistening spike of bourbon. And the syrup! Don’t get me started. And since there’s sweet potato in it, I can only assume it’s healthy, right?
Sweet Potato Bourbon Bundt Cake with Bourbon Syrup (recipe here)1 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan2 large eggs1 cup cooked sweet potato1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour3/4 cup milk1/3 cup bourbon or apple juice1 tablespoon baking powder1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice3/4 teaspoon saltNonstick cooking spray with flour3 tablespoons chopped pecans
DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together brown sugar, butter, and eggs until very light and fluffy. Add sweet potato and vanilla; beat to combine. Add flour, milk, bourbon, baking powder, pie spice, and salt; mix until just incorporated. Lightly spray a 10 or 12 cup Bundt pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle bottom and up sides of the pan with pecans. Pour in cake batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack. Brush cake with bourbon syrup. Serve cake slices with any remaining syrup.

Is this not the most beautiful Sazerac you have ever seen? Built with Bulleit Rye, Herbsaint, sugar and Peychaud’s bitters, it was a scrumptious little piece of New Orleans found in Atlanta. Thanks DBA Barbecue.
