Flaming Cherries Jubilee Rum Cake

Nancy J. Patrykus


This is a glorious flaming desert presentation for your Holiday guests. They will be talking about this cake for years!
The flaming cherries are ladled onto the slices of cake at the table!
Be sure to turn the lights down low when it is time to serve.
I found this in a magazine ad years ago. I do not know the year as I have been collecting and keeping only the best recipes for over 60 years.
Sorry I did not write down the dates!
This recipe and picture is from a Pillsbury Advertisement ad.
