    westtextazzy's Note:

    This rum cake is inspired by island ingredients and adds coconut, peaches, lime, ginger and honey to a traditional rum cake. Crystalized ginger is sweetened ginger and is great in baked goods. It can be purchased in many specialty stores and in spice aisles of most supermarkets. You may use a dark rum, if preferred. *Caution, if you are using a cake mix that already has pudding in it, omit the box of pudding in the recipe.

      What a lovely cake this recipe makes, soft, tender and full of flavor. Loved the little pops of extra flavor in the cake from the crystallized ginger and the golden raisins. The lime and rum honey glaze is delicious, not overly sweet. You mentioned sugar in the glaze istructions, but sugar is not listed in the ingredients, so I didn't use any and didn't miss it. I used toasted coconut in your recipe, was what I had in the pantry. I made two versions of this cake, one without rum, ginger and pecans for dh and the other version exactly as written for myself. Both versions were very tasty, it was a great use of contest ingredients. The cake baked for 45 minutes. Good Luck in the contest.
