We travel to the carribean several times a year. This cake is awesome! Better than any island bought cake. I have made this many times for my husband. It is one of his most favorite. I have also made this for both his office and my office, inaddition to baking it for some important customers (I am in outside sales) It always receives rave reviews and never any leftovers. I have tried many different rums and now I usually use Bermuda Black Seal rum for the straight forward rum cake. Found it to be better than any other (including Bacardi, Myers, etc.) But for a change/ feature flavor, you can try one of the many flavored rums (banana, coconut, vanilla, etc) Try replacing the water with pineapple juice and using coconut flavored rum instead of dark rum. Makes a much better Pina Colada cake than the one listed on this site! I have also used chocolate cake and chocolate pudding. Also, cook the rum in the glaze for a minute or so. It will warm you all the way down.
Thanks for sharing, Jackie!
