This Drunken Apple Cake is a great cake recipe for fall and the holidays! It is incredibly moist, to the point of being custard-like in places, and it features a nice balance of sweet, tart, and (thanks in large part to the rum) slightly spicy flavor. This is a great choice for anyone who likes a really “wet” dessert with a lot of flavor depth. I loved the alternating layers of firm cake and creamy apple goodness. If you like apples at all, you really ought to give this recipe a try!
Of course, the precise flavor balance that you have will depend in part on your choice of apples. I went with an aged rum for a bit of a richer flavor, but you could go with a light rum if you want a bit of a leaner, crisper flavor or a spiced rum if you want your cake to be a bit on the sweetly spicy side.
