Delicious Rum Cake by Dawn B.


"When visiting Key West, we sampled some rum cake; it was very good. I made it my mission to find a great recipe for rum cake and found a cookbook while in Key West which had an authentic rum cake recipe. Through the years as our family has enjoyed the recipe, this final version has been created. Coconut flavored rum works well." - Dawn B.
