While in the Keys, we sampled some rum cake. Delicious! Luckily, I found a cookbook with some famous Key West Recipes in it and here was the Rum Cake recipe.

The best rum cake I have ever had. Very easy to make. I added rum where the recipe called for water and also added a teaspoon of canola oil. Made it for friends and they all raved!
