And heads-up to all those that usually get a cookie box for me, guess what–I’m behind schedule this year. So yes, they are still coming, but I’m switching things up a bit with more than just cookies. Any guesses?
Yep, you’re looking at it.
For those of you that don’t know me, I had rum cake for the first time a few years ago by way of a co-worker. I instantly loved it and asked for the recipe with no success since she sold them. So like a proper foodie, I saved a few slices so that I could compare it to the recipe testing I did on my own.
After four years and more than a dozen cakes, I’ve found my rum cake recipe. Hit the jump to Better Homes and Garden’s blog Delish Dish for my second favorite rum cake recipe and my tips for success when making this recipe.
