  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Gradually add the vegetable oil, bourbon, and vanilla extract, stirring well.

  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  7. Remove from the oven and let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. Once cooled, frost the cake with cream cheese frosting and garnish with additional chopped walnuts, if desired.

  9. Slice and serve.
