I have been told for years that I couldn't share this recipe, because it is a "family" recipe! while searching the internet one evening, my husband calls me to the computer. "Isn't this your rum cake recipe?" I was surprised to see our family recipe there for all to see. I do have a different technique that use when completing my own cake, and now I'm sharing it with you.
