Not your typical rum cake, and not your typical fruit cake, either. I used dark rum for this, so I'm not sure if light rum is going to be a good substitution or not. Edit it to add: I have now included the flour, so please try the recipe if you have not already.

It didn't dawn on me that the ingredients list was missing the flour until I put it in the oven. I let it bake anyway. It came out with a saucy texture. I loved it on ice cream. I suggest that It be re-submitted as an ice cream sauce. it was incredible over vanilla ice cream. I hid in the back of the refrigerator so I could keep it to myself. If this were an ice cream topping, I'd give it five stars.
