AJ's Gourmet Rum Cakes
Rum cakes have a long history, they are a traditional Christmas dessert, that descended from the Christmas pudding introduced by English settlers in the Caribbean.
Our family has also made rum cakes a long family tradition, we have been baking them and giving them as gifts for four generations.
This old fashion, tried-and-true recipe makes the moistest rum cake you'll ever eat. It's the one cake I know of that gets better as it ages. Although, most of the time it doesn't last very long. It's also the perfect cake for mailing. The rum acts as the perfect preservative. It also freezes beautifully.
