      Very good cake. I used Amaretto instead of rum so it wouldn't be too strong - and it was subtle. It is nice that it did not compete with the mild eggnog flavor. I subbed 1/4 cup of the butter with applesauce, and reduced the sugar by 25%, since we don't like things too sweet. I forgot the glaze, but it actually didn't need it. This makes a nice light soft cake with 12 regular size pieces. Thanks!

      I had seen this recipe on another site, and came back to Zaar for a second opinion. I fixed this exactly as written, no changes, and paid heed to the reviews and it looks incredible. There was a tiny bit that broke off the edge while I was glazing it, and from that little bite, I can tell it will be wonderful..I am taking it to an annual "after the holidays" dinner with friends tomorrow, so I haven't allowed anyone into this yet, but I'm so positive it will be wonderful. Thanks for posting.

      For the cake I left out the dried fruit, rum, and orange zest. I made this for a church lunch and many people went back for a second slice. I got lots of complments on both looks and taste. I'm going to start making this (minus the fruit) every year. I did paint the cake with glaze (adding more rum and less orange juice). It would have still been great without the glaze, but the glaze does add a nice "bite" to the edges. I sprinkled the cake with powdered sugar and nutmeg and lightly drizzled it with caramel sauce. Next time I might garnish it with strawberries or cranberries. Also, make sure to beat the butter and sugar for a while. Otherwise you'll have a more dense and dry cake.
