Rum Cranberry Cake

It is the holiday season and time for the classics. The rum cake is one such recipe. This is generally found across the Caribbean islands famous for rum. I have been trying to perfect my recipe for the past few weeks and end up making it three times. This time, it turned out very good. Last week I made this recipe to test out the ingredients. There was more than enough cake left over and so I packed a box full of cake for the husband to take to his office. He was always telling me about donuts and birthday cakes that people bring and leave at the coffee machine for everyone to try. I was delighted when he called me to tell how his colleagues were complimenting the cake. It made my day 🙂

For those of you who follow me on Instagram know me posting about a kitty cat. Last week I took an opportunity to capture this fuzz ball in a photo. Everyday he waits for us come on to the porch and meows 🙂 Such a friendly cat, I wish he had his name tag. I don’t know what his name is 🙂

  • Garnish with rum soaked cranberries.

Serve it warm !

Notes :

  • Do not pour the syrup directly into the cake mold. It makes the edges of the cake stick to the walls and it becomes difficult to get the shape exactly.
  • Make sure you use a parchment paper and grease the mold well before pouring the batter.

Happy Holidays everyone 🙂 !!..

Love
