    txzuckerbaeckerin's Note:

    This one is actually a very nice one. I drown it repeatedly with rum or brandy once a week from October on. It is so good by Xmas! Many of my friends love it and insist on having it every year. I post it here for safekeeping.

      This is very close to a recipe my mom made. I skip the walnuts and substitute pecans ( just a personal preference) I also substitue a good bourbon for the rum or brandy. The cake is great and the memories it evokes are wonderful.
