My mother and I tried many different types of rum cake to find the best one, and finally hit on this cake that doesn't dry out and imparts the most flavor. For a really moist cake, brush rum over the individual sponge cakes before topping them with the filling. —Dona M. Hoffman, Addison, Illinois

  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 6 individual round sponge cakes
