My mom asked me to bring desserts for Thanksgiving this year (this is the first year in several my husband and I haven't done it with his family), so I'm thinking this cake looks really wonderful. I'm just wondering if I could use rum extract instead of the rum in the cake. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! :)

Yummy! Not really pound cake, more of a Bundt cake, but still great. My only issue is that it fell apart when I unmolded it - make sure you cool it completely before removing it from the pan.

I really liked that recipe. The cake was moist and full of flavor. I had to lower the temperature of my oven b/c after the first 30 mins, the crust started to be really dark and hard. I omitted the butterscotch glaze and went with a Rum glaze instead. What can I say, I am a lushie ;)

This was my first time baking and this was fairly easy. Melting the butterscotch morsels turned out to be a mess but it worked out at the end. I couldnt really taste the rum, but the overall texture of the cake was great. I was surprised that a convenience cooker like myself was able to pull it off. I think I messed up the glaze though, it was too chunky.

I've made this for family gatherings as well as for work and it gets rave reviews. Everybody constantly asks me to make it again. When serving at home, I like to drizzle the plate with caramel before plating the cake. You get a little more of the flavor and it looks great.

This is an easy cake to make for any of those baking novices out there. The cake did not have enough of a rum flavor for me but taste is a pretty subjective thing so the rum flavor might have been more than enough for some people. The one thing I will note on this recipe is that I'm not sure the best way to melt the butterscotch chips that go in the cake is in the microwave. I ended up getting one big clump of butterscotch that became little chunks in the cake batter.
