Born, raised and living in the US Virgin Islands, the rum cake is a big part of our culture. I was quite skeptical about this recipe. It just seemed too easy and simple. I made this yesterday and it is AWESOME! Tastes exactly like the ones I'm used too! I did add a half tsp of rum extract for extra flavor-wow! The glaze...well it was not a glaze. The sugar crystalized when I added the rum so it was thick and crumbly and the cake did not absorb most of it and still the cake was great. Next time I will add more butter and melt the sugar in it 1st and then add the water and lastly the rum. I think that should do it. This cake gets a 5 star from me!!
