    rainna's Note:

    I made this over the weekend. It was so good, and moist. The norm would be to bake it in a bundt pan, but I turned them into cupcakes so everyone would have their own without fighting for a slice. I soaked 4 stalks of vanilla beans in the rum for a month before using, it had a very nice familiar smell you would find in Rum and Raisin ice cream. For an added oomph, top it up with some rum flavoured butter icing or rum glaze.

      I was looking for a recipe for Jamaican rum cake and came across this. This is NOT Jamaican rum cake as a real Jamaican would make it. It might be good but it is not Jamaican

      Very nice cake. I did not have the lime zest, so omitted that, used whole wheat flour and coconut light rum. With the changes, still came out great.

      Very good cake. I made half a recipe and got six mini bundt cakes. I think I'll serve them with a little lime sherbet next time. Served as a dessert with Jamaican pork kabobs and Jamaican potato salad.
