"Loved it! I do not understand why everyone waits for Christmas to make these delightful concoctions, I do them year round, though sometime I cheat and have them in form of steamed pudding (very similar). Didn't have any browning sauce so I used a TBSP of chicory coffee instead. Super recipe."
"well what can i say,it was absolutely wonderful.It didn't last long.Now all the family want one for christmas.Thankyou so much.I guess i will be baking to christmas eve ha ha,I would change nothing about the recipe,i found it just perfect."
"I love black cake, but I can't say that I'm the best baker. In the past, when I couldn't get it from family during Christmas, I would even order it online from websites like Aunt Eulie's. But I tried your recipe and I was so excited that it came out good. I am practicing so that I can feel confident to share my black cake with others."
"I made this cake this weekend and I must say I was very pleased with the results, it was just the right consistancy, very tasty and enjoyed by all, many thanks"
"I made this with some modifications. I used red wine and soaked the fruit in the wine for several hours before baking. Really rewarding and I plan to serve it at thanksgiving as an alternate dessert."
"The recipe sounds great, I will have to try this one, definitely. I am from Dominica, not Dominican Republic, and my mom makes this for me every year. It lasts all year long, i just ate a piece yesterday. she uses about 5 sticks of butter, 1 bottle of red wine soaks the fruits in the wine for weeks she tops it with a sugar icing when it is baked."
"I loved this recipe, I made up my own mix of dried fruit with some dates and dried pears and all. I soaked the fruit for several weeks in the fridge beforehand - if anyone else does this you really don't need any extra rum when it comes to making the cake! Made a rich flavourful cake thank you."
"Wonderful!!! My husband requested this cake for his birthday. We had this while still warm with pouring custard. We will be making this one for Christmas....Just a fantastic flavour & enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing Lennie!!"
"this recipe was insane, i had a few friends over for memorial weekend , I made it everyone went crazy. I like it especialy when hot this a must try recipe"
