Whisper Creek Sinful Chocolate Bundt Cake

Whisper Creek Sinful Chocolate Bundt Cake

We hear time and time again from professional and home bakers alike that Whisper Creek makes the perfect secret ingredient for many of their favorite desserts! 

It should come as no surprise, as it's one simple ingredient that can add layers of flavor. Besides the flavor of real Tennessee Whiskey, Whisper Creek has more than 30 other all-natural flavors to add to your recipes. 

This decadent recipe is deceptively simple and can be made in miniature versions as we've done here or in one large bundt cake pan.

To be really sinful, serve it with a small glass of Whisper Creek to pour over the top!

 

Ingredients:

1 box Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake Mix

Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream

 

GLAZE

1 cup light brown sugar, tightly-packed

1 stick butter

1 cup Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream

Mix cake batter according to package directions, substituting Whisper Creek for the water called for in the recipe. Divide among 8-10 mini bundt cake pans or one large bundt cake pan and bake according to directions on cake mix package.

While baking, make the glaze by melting butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a bubbling boil and remove from heat. Carefully whisk in Whisper Creek and set aside.

Once cakes are baked, remove from oven and shake lightly to loosen from the pans. Divide syrup equally among the cakes and ladle over top, allowing it to soak into the cake.

Let cool before removing from pans. To ease in removal, place cake(s) in a hot oven for 5-10 minutes to soften the glaze.

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and a small glass of Whisper Creek to pour over top.

Coffee & Creek Jelly Shots

Coffee & Creek Jelly Shots

These dramatic gems of gelatin take the infamous “jello shot” from frat parties and dress it up ready for gourmet dinner parties. You can choose to layer the two flavors, pouring one on top of the other or make it more stunning by suspending cubes of the Whisper Creek gelatin in the coffee gelatin.

 

Ingredients:

½ cup cold water

½ cup sweetened condensed milk

1 cup Whisper Creek®

2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin

1 cup black coffee (chilled)

1 cup coffee liqueur

2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin

 

To make the Whisper Creek® gelatin, start by pouring water into a small saucepan. Before turning on the heat, sprinkle the gelatin over the water and allow it to soak up the moisture for a minute or two. Once it has absorbed the water, turn heat on low and add the sweetened condensed milk. As the mixture warms, the gelatin will dissolve. Once it is fully dissolved, remove from heat, add Whisper Creek and stir to combine. Pour into a flat-bottomed pan and refrigerate until set (about one hour). For best results, prepare a spot in the refrigerator where you can be sure the pan is level prior to chilling the gelatin.

Prepare the coffee gelatin by adding the coffee (chilled or room temperature, but not hot) into a saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the coffee and allow it to soak up the moisture before turning heat on low. Once the gelatin has fully dissolved, remove from heat and add stir in coffee liqueur.

To avoid melting the Whisper Creek® gelatin, allow your coffee gelatin to sit at room temperature and cool down before pouring over the Whisper Creek layer. If you want to create a dramatic look, slice the Whisper Creek® layer into small cubes and spread them around the pan evenly before pouring the coffee gelatin into the pan. Refrigerate on a level surface until chilled. Slice into squares and serve.

The jello shot has grown up! Try this combo of coffee liqueur and Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping cream.

Whisper Creek Salted Caramel and Pecan Ice Cream

Whisper Creek Salted Caramel and Pecan Ice Cream

Salted caramel is that perfect blend of sweet and salty that makes folks go nuts! Add in some roasted pecans and the subtle flavoring of Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream and this ice cream is purely addictive!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole milk

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 cup sugar

6 egg yolks

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoons vanilla extract

½ teaspoon pure almond extract

½ cup Whisper Creek®

½ cup roasted pecans, finely chopped

 

Start by making the caramel. Add the sugar to a completely dry saucepan and place over medium heat. Do not stir or touch the sugar, but watch it closely as it begins to melt. Once you see the sugar start to melt around the edges, stir it from outside in with a silicone spatula. Blend the sugar until it is fully combined and continue cooking as it darkens. Do not step away during this process, as the sugar can quickly go from tasty caramel to bitter and burnt. Once the sugar is a medium-brown color and smells strongly of caramel, remove from head and carefully add the cream, stirring constantly. Be careful, as it will bubble violently at first. Add the remaining cream, milk and salt. Put the yolks in a metal or glass bowl and whisk lightly. When the cream mixture is starting to steam, whisk a cup or so, ¼ cup at a time, into the yolks to temper them. Once the eggs are tempered, slowly whisk them into the cream mixture. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat roughly 5 minutes, or until the cream mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Do NOT let this mixture come to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in the Whisper Creek and vanilla extract.

Chill the mixture in your refrigerator until completely cool. Process according to the instructions of your ice cream maker. Blend in pecans and transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze for as long as you can, preferably overnight.

2/3 cup granulated sugar                 

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
