Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Sprinkle nuts evenly onto bottom of fluted tube pan sprayed with cooking spray. Beat cake mix, eggs, sour cream, 1/2 cup whiskey and oil in large bowl with mixer until blended. Pour over nuts in pan.
Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 min. Loosen cake from side of pan with knife. Invert cake onto serving platter; gently remove pan.
Combine sugar, butter and water in small saucepan; bring to boil on medium heat, stirring frequently. Gradually stir in remaining whiskey until blended. Serve cake drizzled with warm sauce.
Your loved ones will know it's a special occasion when you serve this indulgent whiskey cake.
Prepare cake and whiskey glaze as directed. Instead of drizzling glaze over cake slices, poke holes in top of cooled cake on serving platter, using wooden skewer. Pour glaze slowly over top of cake, allowing it to soak into holes.
Substitute apple juice for the whiskey.
For a change of pace, top cake slices with whiskey-flavored COOL WHIP. Add 1 to 2 Tbsp. whiskey glaze to each cup of thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping; stir gently with whisk until blended. Spoon over cake slices.
Substitute PLANTERS Pecans for the walnuts.
