Chocolate Caramel Rum Cake

Chocolate again. Yep. Chocolate is always on my mind so it makes its way here a lot. There’s nothing fancy or complex about this recipe, just a straight chocolate caramel rum cake. Sometimes simple is best and sometimes more rum is better than less. Of course you can glaze to your preference, I personally like it on the more aggressive side. But whether you go heavy or light-handed, you’ll see the caramel rum provides an uncomplicated contrast to the chocolate cake to keep it from being a one note dessert.

Chocolate Caramel Rum Cake

And you’ll have to take my word on that one for a little bit. Know why? I can’t find the recipe. What. . .the. . . freak? How is that possible?

Honestly, I’m not sure, especially since I’m so super anal about crazy stupid stuff like color blocking my closet, creating a billion Spotify and iTunes playlists according to genre, artist, decade and mood. You would think all that need for classifying and granularity would dictate me being  a highly organized person? I would like to think so too, but as evident by the lost of this recipe – not so much.

My apologies, for the mess up here. Check back in a week or two after I go through the recipe a few times to verify the accuracy of what I can remember (that’s downside of baking and writing a lot of recipes—things start to blend together). I’ll post it here once I re-create it.

Apparently my five days of posting is experiencing a few hiccups. But stick with me – I’ll find my pacing. Man, this blogging is just tough stuff.

    I know that feeling! I think I made the best cheesecake ever year ago and after eating it, I didn´t find that recipe anywhere… That is so hard when it happens! I hope you will find this one because it looks so yummy :)

    Hey, it’s ok! Who doesn’t misplace recipes–or totally forget what they used? I for one spend a non-trivial amount of time squinting at my pictures to remind myself of my ingredients. :) This cake does look amazing, so when you find the recipe, I’ll be waiting!

    I’ve lost a recipe or two in my few years of blogging. Sucks when it happens! But at least you still have a tasty cake to eat :)

    Is it me, or is it ironic that there is a “save recipe” button at the top of the post?? :) Please find the recipe, it is snowing and this cake just looks like it would hit the spot!

    Oh my gosh, I have seriously done the same thing. I make something that I am super super happy with and then cannot remember half the stuff I did when I made it. Ahhh, must be more organized! At least the cake is gorgeous, and I believe you that it’s delicious! PS: rum caramel?? YES PLEASE.

    I use to color block my closet too. NowI also arrange tops and dressed in sleeve length and then secondarily by whether they are collared. It’s ridiculous, but I can’t stop.
