Just a simple cake. My sister had this as a family tradition, she said never give this out it was special. Later in years she was diagnosed with cancer and before she died she told me she had something important to tell me. She said the Rum Cake recipe I gave you, well it is not a special one, I got it off the shelf at Safeway store so you can now share this recipe. It was a family tradition for years and it still is with me. Debbie my sister this one is for you.God Bless you.
