I lose this so often I'm "archiving" it here. It just isn't Christmas without gaining 5 pounds with this cake. But it's sooooo worth it! Note that I don't make this according to recipe. I add a healthy slosh of REAL rum into the batter as well as top this with extra sprinkling of sugar to achieve a wonderful crusty top.
