"I brought this to a gathering and everyone LOVED it! My slow cooker was empty in a matter of minutes! We will be making this again and doubling the recipe if not tripling! Excellent with French vanilla ice cream!"

"Absolutely DELICIOUS! It reminded me of the first time I experienced this dish in New Orleans (minus the drama of setting the dessert on fire right at my table!) and gave me a go-to-anytime way to bring that dish home.

The only changes I made were forgetting the coconut which I think would've really sent this recipe over the top, and serving it over angel food cake instead of pound cake. Still--it was phenomenal! The next time I make this, I may slightly reduce the amount of rum or eliminate that altogether in favor of a bit of rum flavoring as this was the only thing my husband wasn't crazy about."

"cootie, According to this chart, http://homecooking.about.com/library/archive/blalcohol12.htm after 1.5 hours in the slow cooker will still leave 20% of the alcohol behind. Rum extract also contains alcohol. You'd need to find an non-alcohol based extract if you want this with no alcohol content. If you're cooking for a recovering alcoholic, skip this recipe altogether. Just taste of alcohol, even in the absence of actual alcohol, can trigger a relapse."

"quick question: I don't cook with alcohol much, so will the alcohol cook out of the rum? How would I adjust this recipe to accommodate using an extract instead, or is that not recommended? I would love to make this for my son and I (he's 9) and am concerned about using actual rum."

"Very good made as instructed first time, second time left out coconut - I liked it better without coconut. Just a personal preference. Thanks for submitting :)"
