Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

    I did this with Armagnac (did not have Whisky or Bourbon), and substituting maple syrup for molasses. I also used salted butter as I prefer my caramel on the salty side. That was quite nice and spicy, although the cake did look much lighter than in the picture (in terms of color). My guests really liked it (the guy was really happy to the point I felt a bit embarassed towards his wife who also liked it ... but well... lol :) I served it warm at breakfast after 10 minutes on grill mode oven. I served this at work as well and everybody was complimental... It was really tasty and the Armagnac came out nicely.
