It’s been told to me that this is the Best Rum Cake Ever.   We will see.   Come into my kitchen and enjoy this great recipe for a rum cake.


April Fool

I’m so excited to make this recipe with you.  I have never made it before and thought it would be fun today since I just bought plenty of rum.   You know I have been eating healthy and getting skinny and I decided today was the day I would cheat.   And this sounds like a great day to try it being April first and all.

So let’s get straight to the cake

1 cup butter
1 teaspoon sugar
2 large eggs

 Now go ahead and select a large mixing bowl, measuring cups, etc.

Hi Evelyn,I just saw this. I love to make rum cake. I actually almost got fired once because I made a rum cake for work. I told my boss to beware of the bottom of the cake because that is where the sauce goes - the bottom. He apparently didn't listen and was walking around funny all day. He's a recovering alcoholic and hadn't had a cocktail in 17 years. Honestly, I would not have made that cake if I had known. Other than that incident, I make a mean rum cake. When you let yourself not cheat but enjoy a piece, try the dark rum. Much better. Save the light stuff for egg nog. Great joke, by the way.
