Rum Cake - Looks Good

The old recipe is pulled out of file
and probably been over 20 years since I made it.

50 year old stem pan is prepared
Cake looks good
and always concerned if they will slide out of pan when inverted
and no problem
looking good.

Sugar, water, butter is boiled for 5 minutes
stirring continually,
take off burner and add Rum.
Pour on cake after many holes are punched in cake
Finished product
and it looks good.
I am tempted to try
but if I do
might eat the whole cake...
This is a copy of the old recipe
probably
close to 50 years old
I remember
that many years ago
when children were small and all home
I would use Rum flavoring
when making this cake.

Sure hope this is as good as I remember...

There was a small bottle of Bacardi Rum in the cupboard
planned on putting in tea at times
so used that.

Your Thanksgiving will be blessed by luscious desserts. This one looks delicious. I have a bundt cake that has sherry as an ingredient. It's good too. Maybe a little slice of cake with a cup of tea with rum is in order for you. Have a wonderful day...Balisha

wow - that is the very same recipe we use in our family. I recall one Christmas when I made 5, back to back. people came over to celebrate Christmas in small groups and each set of friends ate it until it was gone! just could not get enough. it is so delicious and so moist!(I don't even punch holes in mine. it absorbs fine for me. I use bundt cake pan.) oh, how I love this cake! was fun to find you using the same recipe. I'll be making it for Christmas instead of thanksgiving. I always dust the top of mine with powdered sugar when it is cool.

Balisha, Val, Judy and Charlotte, :)

Sky, oh my - I cut this recipe out of the paper many years ago.
That is remarkable
that you use the same recipe and dusted mine with powdered sugar.
Thank you for sharing...

This looks so good I might just have to try it. I'm making vanilla with rum for the first time, with the thought that it would make tasty Christmas treats. May your Thanksgiving be blessed~

Sharon and Marielle,
Cake was so good and moist
but think next time - rum in cake and 1/2 that amount for pouring on top...

Nancy, this cake was wonderful and going to make some for gifts at Christmas.
Did not show the picture with
confectionary sugar sifted on top.
Again
it was a winner...
