It's almost time for some Jamaican Rum Cake...
I REALLY miss being able to go to a store and buy Jamaican products. One thing I've been craving lately is Jamaican Rum Cake. This picture really doesn't do it much justice. It may not look super delicious or it may look a little plain but this cake will make you wanna slap your mama. ;)
First of all not everyone can actually make this cake and the effort and love that goes into this recipe really shows as soon as you take the first bite. People start fights over this cake, that's how serious it is, lol.
It's mostly consumed around Christmas time. The fruits, rum and wine that's used in this recipe is soaked in a huge jar for ONE WHOLE year.
It's one of those cakes that'll melt in your mouth and leave you a little tipsy at the same time (especially if you eat it from my mom ;)) because Jamaicans LOVE their rum and wine and will be VERY generous with the pouring of said rum and wine while making this cake.
Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. It's just that good.
Anywhoo, I know it's pretty random but I'm a little excited because it's almost that time a year for me to get some. My mom will be mailing some to us here in Hawaii and I cant wait... :)
