I do love a piece of cake, so you can imagine I couldn’t resist temptation when I saw these boxes of Jose Cuervo tequila cake while I was in Mexico. I’ve had rum cake before, but never thought of using tequila in a cake. It turned out to be a plain sponge cake that was doused in a syrup that contains tequila, rather like a sticky toffee pudding. The cake was super light and perfectly sweet and sticky, but where was the tequila? I don’t think it came into play at all, which was a bit of a let down.
