Mom's Rum Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Very good base cake recipe. I was skeptical at first because the batter is very thick and I thought the cake would come out thick and dry, but it did not. The cake is very moist and light. And instead of 1/2 cup of spiced rum, I used 1 cup of spiced rum. The cake has more kick and you can smell the rum, and really taste the rum flavor. I placed sliced almonds in the bottom of the pan instead of pecans. The glaze is the weakest link of this recipe. It is too watery. Instead I used West Indian Cream Rum Liqueur (like Bailey's) and I added the sugar and butter, and sliced almonds to thicken up the glaze and then I let it cool. I it added after I took the cake out of the pan and let it cool.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Very good base recipe, but I made mine with 3 sweet potatoes instead of just one and I used half a can of sweet condensed milk instead of the large amount of sugar. It came out just as sweet and still retained the sweet potato flavor. I love this recipe! Can't wait to make it for Xmas!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This cake is too dense and heavy. The recipe could do with a lot less of everything, especially sugar. Will not be making again.
