The first time I came across this recipe I was little skeptic about the idea of using fireball whisky in a cake. Usually you hear recipes calling for sherry, brandy, bailey's, etc. but not a hard punch of whisky, so this was definitely something new to me.

Regardless, I decided to give the recipe a try to see how it would turn out, and the results were OUTSTANDING! The combination of cinnamon and vanilla with a little hint of spice was perfect!
