With all of the elements of a Southern mint julep cocktail, this cake is perfect for Kentucky Derby Day this weekend. The rich pound cake has a white chocolate ganache frosting with a light mint flavor to complement the Bourbon butter sauce infused in the cake. You probably won't want to wait for Kentucky Derby Day to make this cake. Even without the bourbon butter sauce and/or creme de menthe frosting, the cake will shine with a simple dusting of powdered sugar. May also be made as a sheet cake.
