My mom received some rum cakes from a friend a few years back and we absolutely loved the moist rum flavor! This delicious cake gets its moistness from the buttery rum glaze that soaks the cake. Topped with pecans and a butter rum glaze, this is a perfect gift to someone for the Holidays! I use imitation Rum Extract instead of real rum because it's more affordable. You may use real rum if you wish (would recommend malibu rum). This is definitely a seasonal cake and you should pace yourself when enjoying this cake as it is very addicting :p ENJOY and Merry Christmas!
