      I've made this cake twice. It's so delicious and you can't get enough. I baked the cake for 45 mins. at 325 degrees in a 7.5"x12" Pyrex pan and it was perfect. After baking, I poked holes all over the cake with a fork so the liquid would soak in. I substituted 1 TBSP vanilla for the rum.

      This is very good. The first time I forgot to put the plastic wrap over the soaking cake, and we ended up with a cake float. The second time I followed the instructions explicitly and it turned out fine. Note to eaters: this is also very good without the frosting... try a little whipped cream and fresh berries on top... YUM. Thanks for posting Mille®™!

      This cake tasted great and received many compliments. I made it the evening before a party. By the time I took it out of the pan, the next day it was quite soggy (more like flan than cake). It looked fine after I frosted it and garnished it. I think next time though I will use a little less milk and make it the day of my party.
