This Homemade Rum Cake is perhaps best suited to holiday gatherings, but it is a straightforward enough recipe that you can make it most any time that you like. It takes about an hour to prep and bake and makes about 10 servings.
Even if you aren’t a drinker, you have to appreciate the depth of flavor that certain spirits can give a dessert. (I remember the whisky sauce that my great-grandmother put over bread pudding–that was to die for!) I love the rich molasses flavor that the dark rum gives to this cake.
