Double Chocolate Moonshine Cake


This 8-inch ring cake is made with real Virginny corn whiskey hooch from our pals in the next county. It’s a rich cake topped with a chocolate glaze; the booze is pronounced but mellow. Bon Appetit and NBC’s Today Show named it one of the most unique gifts of the year. Serves 8-10.

“Leave it to a baker in moonshine country to create a dessert that rivals the Kentucky bourbon ball. Red Truck’s double-chocolate moonshine cake is made with legal hooch and enough rich chocolate to give you a buzz.” —Garden & Gun magazine

Started in a Virginia farmhouse over 30 years ago, Brian Noyes’ Red Truck Bakery is one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 13 Destination Bakeries in America. Named after the red 1954 Ford truck Brian used to deliver his rustic baked goods to local country stores, Red Truck Bakery has gained a cult-like following that includes Oprah and former President Barack Obama—with Roadfood’s Jane & Michael Stern being among some of their loudest and proudest early supporters.
