Mom's Rum Cake
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
8 ingredients
12 servings
Mom made this cake for years, especially for bake sales. She dressed it up so nice with her rum glaze and maraschino cherries. She says don't be shy with the rum glaze, generously pricking with cooking fork and saturating with turkey baster! What can I tell you? Mom's Rum Cake was the first to go at bake sales. Wonder if the secret to her 88 years is rum. See Mom's Mincemeat Pie recipe. No matter what, mom always baked like she wrapped gifts--with tender, loving care.
