TWD: Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes


This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was super easy and very tasty: two thumbs up!! The Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes were picked by Wendy of Pink Stripes.


I took the cake to work and forgot to take pictures when I set them up, so by the time I finally remembered that I still had to photograph the cake there was only half a slice left!!



The only problem I had with this cake: there wasn't enough of it!!! I should have never halved the recipe!!


The recipe can found over at Pink Stripes. Go visit the LYL to see what my fellow TWD-ers thought of the Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes.

An empty plate is always a good sign... and the last piece always hangs around the longest people no one wants to take the last piece.

This was VERY good. Definitely a repeat here. But with GOOD rum next time. Yes, 1/2 recipe just isn't enough.

Peggy zei

Yea, I'm your first comment on the vanilla cake! I was going to make this tonight and had to go to a funeral viewing instead so no TWD for me this week. Your cake must have been really tasty to have gotten eaten up so quickly. I was excited to try this and will have to make it soon. Maybe for the weekend coming up.

So glad you enjoyed it! And isn't half a cake slice better than no cake at all? ;-)

Sweet and Savory zei

I made half also. You are fortunate, you shared it. This one was just for us.

The second photo shows how delicate it can appear. There is something about that picture, I love.

Always better to leave them wanting more, I say. Must have been delicious!

chocolatechic zei

I rarely half the recipe.

Someone will always eat it.

Kimberly Johnson zei

It looks like you got a perfect crumb! Yum!

Kayte zei

That is one great looking half slice in the close-up, no wonder it disappeared so quickly. It was great, with or without the rum!

Tia zei

I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. It was a good cake. Glad you got a picture of it before it was all gone!

Clivia zei

Your photo of the one lone piece made me laugh. I knew just what had happened. This recipe's a definite keeper!

pinkstripes zei

It was very popular at my work too! I've got the other half in the freezer though. Thanks for baking along with me.

miss kate zei

I love it! Something about these photos looks so festive and "after the party"ish--the crumbs are like confetti.

Babette zei

New rule: never cut a pound cake recipe in half. That will serve us in good stead for the rest our our lives.

Susan zei

I also wish I had not halved the recipe! Next time I will bake two loaves! :)

margot zei

Wow, you know it's a hit when you hardly get a photo! I made half and sort of wish I'd made an extra to have in the freezer.
