I dared to exchange the rum flavoring for the real thing, medium priced golden rum. It was delish! I scaled it down to 8 servings too, cause I wanted to share with family and friends, and not have too much left over, in case I got midnight cravings. heehee
I'm sure if the cooking time wasn't so off, that this cake would be tasty. However, after baking mine for 50 minutes (10 min longer than the recipe calls for), it was time for bed. I woke up to a deflated cake and tried desperately to bake it for 30 more min. The result was a cracker crust with a gooey middle...awful in other words. The frosting wasn't that good either. A lot of butter, apples, sugar and pecans wasted...not a cheap mistake.
Oh My Goodness this is so good. I didn't have any rum flavoring or butter flavoring so I used 1/2 c real butter and 1/2 cup margarine and 2+ tsp real rum for sauce. This sauce is really good over vanilla ice cream too. I used Fuji Apples and pecans. YUMMO. It did take another 10 minutes to cook and I used a Pyrex dish so I was surprised it took longer.
Oh my goodness! I substituted walnuts for the pecans and didn't use the butter flavoring... but oh, my... what a wonderful thing! At first I was a bit nervous because the batter was quite stiff - more like a dough than a batter. My company LOVED this. My daughter insisted that folks try it without the sauce (or whip cream!) stating it was just as yummy without. She was right!
Thanks for a great recipe!
I had to cook it 70 minutes, not 40. It turned out very moist and tasty.
This is added to my favorite cake recipes. I recieved many compliments. We loved it!
I followed the directions exactly and the results were a delicious and very moist cake. We ate the first slices of cake warm and then put it in the refrigerator. It was excellent either way.
Delicious served warm with a scoop of Vanilla icecream.
