About 25 years ago, a co-worker brought in rum cake for a potluck. I've never been able to get that out of my head, and I decided to look for a recipe this past weekend and came across this one. I made it exactly as described, and my husband said "no wonder you never forgot that cake". This is going into our regular rotation. My son teenage son helped make it and thought is was better than the Tortuga rum cake we got last year.
