For many years now, this has been my favorite “gift from my kitchen” to special friends. I decided it’s time for me to share the “secret” recipe.
Yes, it begins with a mix and Sandra Lee would be proud of my semi-homemade treat because by the time it’s finished with a few other premium ingredients and a homemade hot rum glaze, it’s closer to a scratch cake.
I’ve been told by many that “this is the best rum cake they have ever eaten”. You will enjoy the ease of preparation since you will be asked to make it many times.
My daughter Elizabeth gave me the best advice about this cake. She suggested that I bake it in two smaller bundt pans instead of one large one. Most people don’t need or want a huge cake tempting them. Though there are some who were a little disappointed to see that their annual Rum Cake had shrunk.
Enjoy this perfect cake for the holidays!
Tell Me: What’s your favorite holiday dessert recipe?
Thank you for sharing your recipe! I saw you bring Cheri Swain your awesome gift and since then sought good recipes to follow! Your recipe is wonderful! (And, of course, Cheri made our mouths water telling us how delicious your Rum Cake was!) Again Thank You!
Thank you, Sheila!! I always love hearing from you!
