Yesterday, I had a request by co-workers for a rum cake. I had my reservations, being that this called for a box mix. Well, I'm SO glad I went ahead and chose this recipe!
I have never tasted rum cake, much less made it. I have to say that this cake is SUPER moist, very dense and oh so RUMMY!
I accidentally used chopped pecans instead of walnuts. Now that I think of it, it's probably better to use pecans. That way, you don't get the bitter peel flavor that you sometimes get with walnuts.
Also, I only had Caribean Rum on hand. I don't think it made a difference. I will definitely be making it again! I'm thinking in muffin tins with the pecans sprinkled across the top and the glaze oozing down over the paper cup. Yum!
