Butter Rum Cake

Butter Rum Cake

For Cake:
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup butter (2 sticks, softened)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs

For Sauce:
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
¼ cup water
1 Tbsp dark rum

My friend and guest, Julie Nafziger, gave me this recipe a good while ago.  Got around to making it yesterday for a pot luck. When I took it out of the tube pan, my mom said it looked pretty uninteresting.  A while later she walked in my office and said to forget making our award winning pound cakes and stick with this one!  I’d serve it plain or with fresh peaches and whipped cream.

Stir together flour, salt, baking powder and  soda in a bowl. Combine buttermilk and vanilla in another bowl.  Cream butter and sugar and beat in eggs one at a time using a mixer.  Add flour mixture alternating with buttermilk mixture.  Spoon into a well buttered 10” tube pan.  Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees, (test with toothpick.)  Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes then poke holes with a long toothpick or an ice pick.

In a sauce pan, melt 1 stick of butter, then add the 1 cup sugar and ¼ cup water.  Cook until sugar dissolves then remove from heat and add 1 Tbsp of  dark rum.   Pierce cake and spoon rum mixture over hot cake.  Cool completely before inverting to a serving plate.   865-448-3070
