Fast, easy, delicious with a touch of cinnamon and cloves and a dash of rum. This fudgy pudding cake makes its own sauce while it's baking and is a snap to put together. Rum extract can be substituted for the rum, but I'm not sure of the measurement. Be sure to try this warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

My whole family devoured this cake. It was simply delicious! The only change I made was to use 1 1/2 t rum extract instead of the dark rum. I served this with vanilla ice cream for a fabulous dessert.
