When we talk about rum cakes, we are reminded of bundt pans and rum glaze. We eagerly wait for the holidays to eat this delicious dessert. Rum cake finds its origin in the Carribean. Traditionally, the preparation starts months ahead. Dried fruit is soaked in rum for months and then added to dough prepared with sugar which has been caramelized by boiling in water. This is known as”black cake” and is similar to a fruitcake but with a lighter texture.The moist, rich, rum cake is made for special occasions and is loved by all. There are different versions of this cake now and each recipe is equally delicious. Bring out the old rum statshed away in the dusty corner of your house and make some delicious rum cake!
