This cake was really big in the 1970'sand is another recipe from the recipe booklet from Bacardi .It is a great cake for the Holiday's.I all way's use to put a place card next to it to let folk's know that it does have real rum in it, not extract.Another cake that can be made a day or so ahead.My friend use this recipe for rum cake in her resturant,and could not keep then in stock. I had trouble finding Bacardi dark rum so I bought Myer Rum - dark . It's just as good I just want to put this on in case you're having trouble finding the original.
