My mom asked me to bring desserts for Thanksgiving this year (this is the first year in several my husband and I haven't done it with his family), so I'm thinking this cake looks really wonderful. I'm just wondering if I could use rum extract instead of the rum in the cake. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! :)

Yummy! Not really pound cake, more of a Bundt cake, but still great. My only issue is that it fell apart when I unmolded it - make sure you cool it completely before removing it from the pan.



I really liked that recipe. The cake was moist and full of flavor. I had to lower the temperature of my oven b/c after the first 30 mins, the crust started to be really dark and hard. I omitted the butterscotch glaze and went with a Rum glaze instead. What can I say, I am a lushie ;)
