Step 1

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a bundt pan and set aside.

In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, beat cake mix, water, oil and bourbon on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Fold in chopped walnuts, if desired.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes. Remove cake from oven and cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Transfer cake to serving plate.

Meanwhile, make the glaze: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt and cook butter, whisking constantly, until butter browns and turns a caramel color. Strain butter into a large bowl.

Add powdered sugar, vanilla and milk to bowl and stir to combine.

Immediately pour glaze evenly over warm cake. Let glaze set and cake cool before slicing.
