    Another night of insomnia so I started this at 5 am this morning,lol. My eggnog has been used up and I have a sense of accomplishment as well as a desire to go back to bed. I skipped the nuts as this is for DH (I've yet to find a sugar free cake mix in Canada) and he hates nuts. For the cherries I alternated red and green as a last homage to Christmas past. The cake looks lovely and came out of the pan beautifully. DH had a slice with coffee a bit ago and put up a hand with 5 fingers extended with his mouth full (it's now 10am). Thanks Lynn for keeping DH's mouth closed and happy for awhile.

    This is a good, moist, cake. Both my husband and I liked it. When adding the cherries, I used exactly 16 of them to line the inside of the pan. Also, I did not add the almonds, as I didn't have them. I don't think this cake necessarily needs the cherries nor the almonds. I think it would taste great w/o them. I found the cake was more than done baking after 40 minutes. Thank you Lynn for posting this recipe!

    This is a very pretty and tasty cake. The flavor is very good. I still taste more rum in it than eggnog. Mine was done baking in 40 minutes. I was surprised that it was not as moist as other rum cakes I have tried. But everyone enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing.
