Kathleen's of Dublin Irish Whiskey Cake
A family recipe...It’s the Irish oatmeal and a wee bit o’ good Irish whiskey that makes this cake so special! I served this wonderful cake every year for 18 years to customers on St. Patrick's Day when I owned m retail shop...Kathleen's of Dublin in Portland, Oregon. Sadly I closed the shop in 2011 but our family still enjoys this lovely cake and you can too. Enjoy!
