Spoon into a 6-cup steamed-pudding mold coated with cooking spray, and cover tightly with lid or aluminum foil.

Place mold on a shallow rack in a stockpot; add boiling water to halfway up sides of mold. Cover and steam over medium-low heat 1-½ hours or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean, adding additional water as needed.

Let cool on a wire rack 10 minutes. Invert mold onto a serving platter; slice and serve warm. Top each slice with about 2-½ tablespoons Whiskey Sauce. Yield: 10 servings.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR WHISKEY SAUCE: Combine apple juice and next 4 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar dissolves.
