Looking for a Jamaican rum cake recipe ? I have a simple one for you.
Jamaican Rum cake is one of the most delicious Jamaican desserts that you can serve after a hearty meal, any time of the day or have it by itself. We also typically serve it at special occasions or parties as a tasty snack and not just for dessert.
In today's "day and age" as we would say here in Jamaica, when the term "rum cake" is used most person's think of our Jamaican fruit cake or what we also like to call black cake or Christmas cake. That cake is very dark almost black in colour and the texture is quite different as well. it is most popularly made during the Christmas season.
The rum cake we are talking about here, and the one I will be sharing the recipe for with you is quite different and it's what was more popular in the older days. The old school Jamaican rum cake looks a lot like a plain yellow or vanilla cake. That is, until you take that bite and the rum hits you!
And, don't let its classy appearance fool you, the Jamaican rum cake recipe is much simpler than you might initially think. This recipe is a simple step by step one that you can follow to bake yourself your most beautiful rum cake, Jamaican style!
If you were following along, you should now have your first (and best) Jamaican rum cake, right?
If so, congratulations! I'd love to taste it, but yikes, you are so far away :-)
Never mind, I'd love to hear from you though!
Please use the comment links below to tell me how it went. I'm waiting :-)
By the way, if you have not started your cake, courtesy of Tortuga, here are some additional captivating pictures of sumptuous Jamaican rum cakes that will inspire you. What I didn't mention before is that rum cakes don't have to be just plain old rum cake and you can make it as fancy as you like.
You can make your rum cake as a gooey chocolate flavoured rum cake, as a pineapple rum cake (which is quite popular here in Jamaica and absolutely delicious too!) or you can go for a coconut rum cake. The sky is the limit so let your imagination run wild, BUT please, before you start experimenting with the different flavours and additions you can make, try the simple and plain rum cake recipe above first.
Looking lovely aren't they? I hope you are now inspired?
And remember rum cakes look like sweet little innocent plain cakes, so they will definitely be tempting to the kids. So keep your rum cake out of the reach of your little ones. And pets too.
