    From the Italian Inn Cookbook. You can make this rum cake several days ahead. It's flavor improves with standing. Let warm to room temperature and flame at serving time.

      Don't know how I missed this wonderful cake - so moist and keeps for days. Thanks so much for such a great addition to my files. We absolutely love any cake with rum but this is an exception.
