Rum Cake Recipe

Growing up in New York, I got the opportunity to taste the world from a young age. School potlucks meant arroz con gandules, Italian American tri-color cake, and one which especially stood out due to its poignant taste, Jamaican rum cake.

In most of the Caribbean, rum cakes are a traditional holiday season dessert, descended from the holiday puddings (such as figgy pudding). Traditionally, dried fruit is soaked in rum for months and then added to dough prepared with sugar which has been caramelized by boiling in dwater.
