I loved this cake, very easy to make. Made in a bundt cake pan and baked for 40 minutes, perfect! I did not add any rum to the cake as I had children eating also. Made this for Father's Day and only put 2 cap full's of rum into the icing and left it off for those that wanted it. Made some other changes also. Used only 1 stick of butter and 2 pre packages cups of natural applesauce. Used "can't believe its not butter" in the icing and cut the white sugar down to a little less than 3/4 cups. Delicious!
