    Holiday Recipe
    Hi Jim,
    I thought I'd share this "special" recipe here instead of submitting it at the project site. (you will see why after reading instructios on preparation of cake) )...hahaha!
    "Merry Christmas"...Love...Sue

    Once again this year, I've had requests for my Tequila Christmas Cake
    recipe, so here goes. Please write this down...I'm getting tired of typing
    this every year...

    1 cup sugar
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 cup water
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup brown sugar
    Lemon juice
    4 large eggs
    Nuts
    1 bottle tequila
    2 cups dried fruit

    Sample tequila to check quality. Take a large bowl; check tequila again to
    be sure it is the highest quality. Repeat. Turn on electric mixer. Beat one
    cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 tsp of sugar. Beat again. At
    this point, it is best to make sure tequila is still OK. Try another cup
    just in case. Turn off the mixer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl
    and chunk iin the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix
    on the turner. If the fruit getas stuck in the beaters, just pry it loose
    with a drewscriver. Test the tequila for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of
    salt, or something, check the tequila, now shift the lemon ice strain your
    nuts. Add 1 table. Add a spoon of sugar or somefink,whatever you can find.
    Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 s and try not to fall over. Get up,
    check tequila. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally throw the bowl
    through the window. Finish the tequila and wipe off the counter with the
    cat.

    I "greashed" my oven - LOL
    Very funny - thanks for making me laugh!
    This certainly shows Christmas "spirit" ☺.

    I may post this on the expressions and
    remind people of the recipe project - like I'm not doing
    that enough ;).

    I agree with John - complete flexibility here.
    Why not vodka too? That and tonic used to my drink
    of choice. Having lived in Texas for 20 years, I was
    no stranger to tequila either :).

    Love the festive PIC by the way! Is that the one
    that ran over Lizzy's grandma? ;).

    "Murray Chrishmuss" to all of you too!

    Hugs,

    Jim

    Found a recipe for Tequila Sunrise Cake
    Tequila Sunrise Cake

    Cake
    =========
    3/4 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    the zest of one large orange
    3 large eggs
    3/4 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup orange juice
    2 Tbsp Curacao
    2 Tbsp Tequila
    2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 cup pomegranate juice
    a drop or two of red food coloring

    Curacao Glaze
    ==============
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/3 cup orange juice (no pulp)
    2 Tbsp Curacao
    1/4 cup powdered sugar

    Optional Topping: 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

    Preheat oven 350 degrees. Bundt pan - well greased and floured.
    In a mixing bowl mix together the dry ingredients - flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar and orange zest until light and fluffy - about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add sour cream. Add flour mixture and orange juice to the mixer in 3 alternating additions. On low speed stir in the tequila and the curacao. Pour 2/3 of the batter into the bundt pan. To the remaining batter, add the pomegranate juice and the red food coloring. Make a slight well in the center of the first layer of batter in the pan. Spoon the second layer of batter into the well. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown or until a pick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Let cool 10 min in the pan then invert cake onto cooling rack with a piece of parchment underneath the rack.

    In a small pan over medium heat mix the sugar and orange juice until sugar dissolves - about 2 minutes. Remove from heat add the curacao and powdered sugar. When the cake is almost at room temperature, spoon the glaze gently over the cake allowing it to absorb as much as it can. Top with the optional pomegranate seeds. Remove to a decorative platter and serve.
