I've made this 3 times now and I can clear up some of the questions everyone is having so that it will turn out well and be delicious! Don't add any more wine than the 2 cups -she only means the wine that is left over in the fruit. I've never added the rum so if you do you may need a little more flour. My Jamaican boyfriend's mom told me that the batter should be thick -stick a wooden spoon into it and it should stay standing (otherwise add more flour).
The second time I made it (of course the time I served it to my boyfriend's mom), I totally didn't bake it long enough but the toothpick had come out clean. Here's a better test: touch the top of the cake and it should bounce back when it's done.
Good luck and enjoy.
