Rich Rum Cake
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
Spectacular! You need to love rum. Not a crumb left and was the first item wiped out on the dessert buffet. A keeper for sure. Also travels well. I made the cake minus the glaze and shipped to my girlfriend with instructions.
Wow, what a dessert. You have to LOVE rum if you're thinking about making this cake because it's not subtle. My book club went crazy over this one. I suppose if you aren't a fan of an intense rum flavor (or are serving to children) you could substitute orange juice for some or all of the rum.
This cake has promise but you need to reduce the amount of rum way down. I am making it again but using 1/3 the amount of rum listed.
I should have read this recipe all the way through. I never would have made this cake if I had. The rum was way too strong for us and we had to throw away the cake which means a waste of good rum as well.
