Just saw the recipe for Drunken Guacamole and thought I'd post a friend's take on Devil's Food or chocolate cake mix. I've done this many times and get rave reviews.
Replace 1/2 cup of water with 1/2 cup bourbon. Follow the rest of the directions to bake and frost as you usually would. This doesn't taste like bourbon; it gives the chocolate a deeper, smoky kind of taste. Some people find the 1/2 cup too much; you might want to try 1/3 or 1/4 cup the first time. Just be sure to use less water and an equal amount of bourbon so the amount of liquid used is the same that the box calls for....don't use the full amount of water called for PLUS the bourbon.
Yes, it's that easy and yes, the bourbon makes a lot of difference in the flavor!
