From: SAMADM@ritvax.isc.rit.edu Date: 13 Jul 1995 06:11:24 -0600 Someone requested a Rum Cake recipe. This one was given to me by my grandmother and is traditionally used at christmas and for weddings. I hope you enjoy it! In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until pale yellow. Add 2 eggs at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and burnt sugar. In a medium bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Add slowly to the large bowl, mixing well. The batter will be very heavy. Add about 2 cups of the fruit mixture (more or less according to taste). Mix well. Pour into well greased and floured cake tins. Bake at 350 degrees for about an 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Once the cake is cooled (do not remove it from the tin), pour approximately 1/4 cup of rum over it. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Check the cake every 2 to 3 days. If it becomes "dry" add some more rum. Continue in this manner for 1 month. (You might not have to add any rum to it after 2 weeks, but keep checking it.) Fruit Mixture: Chop fruit in blender or food processor. Put into a jar which can be tightly sealed. Cover the contents with rum and seal the jar. Keep in a cool, dark place. This should be done at least 1 month in advance of the cake. If you dont use all of the fruit mixture, dont worry...it will keep for years! Its also a great topping for vanilla ice cream! REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES /CAKES From rec.food.cooking archives.
