A question about a recipe: Heavenly Apple Cake

I have a question about the recipe "Heavenly Apple Cake" from Veronica. It is unclear whether I add the calvados to the batter or discard it.

Usually when you "plump" fruit you discard the plumping liquid, which is what I would do in the this case

Good Calvados flavored with figs....I would sip it slowly and smile

Hope Veronica weighs in. That recipe is a riot! How many times does she warn us that the cake is ugly?! Anyway, it sound like she's planning on the dates slurping up pretty much all the Calvados, so unless they're really soupy, I'd go ahead and dump it all in. Hope you're having a glass on the side.
