The strong flavor of this cake requires something light and fruity to contrast it. Instead of the suggested rum mousse frosting (which is very rummy) I mashed up strawberries with sugar and drizzled it over each cake slice. It was the perfect compliment!
I love this cake and so has everyone I served it to except 1 person who does not like rum. It is moist and so very flavorful. My only problem was I added the rum all at once to the frosting and it was a bit runny. In future I added it slowly so as not to put in too much. Plus, I thought the frosting could use a tad more sugar. This is one of my favorite cakes and I have had many requests for the recipe. I used Hershy's cocoa
Being first time baker i wanted to try small potions. Hence i took half of all measurements & bing! It worked well! I didnt hv walnuts so i used raisins. I pre-heated my micro in convec mode @230° (thats max temp in my micro) for 10 min & then baked @200° for 30 min. It had a crust & was soft inside. Thank you for a perfect recipe.
