Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch tube pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour and baking powder; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with 1 cup water, mixing just until incorporated. Spread into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, and 1/2 cup butter. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and stir in rum. Pour hot syrup over hot cake. Let soak for 20 minutes.

This recipe is out-of-this-world. I made it in indivdual mini-bundts to give as gifts. It made 12 mini cakes that are so wonderfully moist and delicious that I am confident they will be a hit with all who receive them. This recipe is a real keeper and thanks Jessica for sharing.

This cake was quite good. I only used 3 tablespoons of rum and thought that was plenty. I would suggest poking holes in the cake with a knife in order for the rum topping to seem down into the middle of the cake. I poured the topping over the cake and it most of the rum flavor was only around the outside edges of the cake. By making small slits in the cake with a butter knife, the rum flavor would be able to penetrate the middle of the cake as well as the sides.

This is a very moist and tasty pound cake. I added four tablespoons of rum instead of five and it was still very tasty. I served it with a scoop of peppermint ice cream and got WOW'S from everyone!
