Derby Cakes

Cakes (inspired by delicious derby pie)
1 yellow cake mix (one without pudding added)
5 eggs
8 oz. sour cream
1/2 c. coconut
1/3 c. bourbon whiskey – Early Times is the official Kentucky Derby whiskey
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 1/3 c. chopped pecans
8-12 oz. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
(or butterscotch chips, or none at all)

Mix all above ingredients (except chips and nuts) in your Kitchen Aid, on high, for 5 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Place in lined cupcake tins. Bake at 350, start testing after 20 minutes.

Boozey Glaze

Approx. ¼ cup bourbon
Approx. 1 cup confectioners sugar

Mix bourbon and confectioners sugar until you have a fairly liquidy brown glaze. Spoon over cakes immediately after they are removed from the oven (while still hot in tins). Let sit for 10-20 minutes before transferring out of tins on to cooling rack. Let cool completely, until glaze has hardened into crust, before serving.
