Rum and fruit cake
So I made a cake today (surprise surprise!). Rum and fruit cake. I did not follow the recipe completely. I did not have cream or golden raisons. I used mixed fruit mixture, honey rum, spelt flour and soft dark brown sugar.
I was quite happy with the result!
Combine raisins and rum; cover and stand until rum is absorbed. Stir together: flour, baking powder, salt. Blend butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl on low speed. Beat on high speed for 5 minutes, scraping down sides often. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternatly with cream. Stir in raisins and turn into baking pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake: 12 cup bundt pan – 70 to 80 minutes; or 2-6 cup bundt pan – 40 to 45 minutes. This cake gets very brown on top. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pans.
