Rated 5 out of 5 by from I simply loved this recipe! I simply loved this recipe! My neighbor makes a delicious rum cake every year for us. I always ask her for the recipe and she never gives it to me. This year with your help I made a fabulous cake for christmas which everyone loved. This was the first cake I've ever made! I will continue to learn and perfect my cooking through this web-site. Thank you! Carol

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What I like about this recipe is that it's quick, few ingredients, and easy. What I like about this recipe is that it's quick, few ingredients, and easy. I would bake it again but changes would include the following: 1. Mix the pecans in the batter. 2.Reduce the baking time from 60 to 45-50 minutes(I checked at 48 minutes and it was done, overdone). 3. Pour the glaze over the entire cake.
