Ingredients

½ cup raisins

6 tablespoons Crown Royal® Maple Finished Whiskey

1½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup packed light brown sugar

½ cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

1 cup canned pure pumpkin

8 ounces mascarpone cheese

¾ cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously coat a 6-cup Bundt pan with nonstick baking spray.
  2. 2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the raisins and 3 tablespoons Crown Royal® Maple Finished Whiskey. Microwave for 3 minutes and cool completely.

In another large bowl, whisk the granulated sugar, brown sugar, oil, eggs, pumpkin, and 2 tablespoons Crown Royal® Maple Finished Whiskey until smooth.

  5. 5. In a large bowl, whisk the mascarpone, confectioners' sugar, and remaining tablespoon Crown Royal® Maple Finished Whiskey. Spread on top of the cake. Garnish with nuts, dried fruit, or candied ginger, if desired.
