This is my ALL TIME favorite cake recipe. If you want to WOW a crowd and have them say "OMG, this is AWESOME," then this is the cake for you. I've made this at least 6 times and each time, everyone says it is the BEST cake they've ever had, and they continue to tell me how good it was even weeks after they've had it. What I like is that it is very moist (thanks to the butter), it has the taste of rum, but it is not soaking in rum. It is also a slightly unique cake and not a standard chocolate or vanilla flavor. I followed other people's recommendations to poke holes on the top and bottom of the cake once it is baked, pour 1/3 of the rum/butter liquid in the bottom of the bundt pan, and re-insert the cake for 15 minutes to soak up the liquid. When you flip the cake out of the bundt pan, I put it on a baking rack that is inside/on top of a large cookie sheet so the cookie sheet captures the liquid run off and doesn't mess up your counter top.
