Serves 16 (serving size: 1 slice cake, 1 tablespoon whipped topping, and 1 teaspoon rum syrup)

This rich, liquor-laced cake will add warmth and comfort to any cold winter night. Be sure to use dark rum, which has a much more robust flavor than white rum and an underlying hint of molasses.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Coat a 10-inch tube pan with cooking spray; sprinkle pecans in bottom of pan.

Step 3

Combine 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook 10 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 3/4 cup. Remove from heat; stir in rum.

Step 4

Combine milk and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until butter melts. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes.

Step 5

Weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and xanthan gum in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Add vanilla, eggs, and milk mixture; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Spoon batter over pecans in pan; sharply tap pan once on counter to remove air bubbles.

Step 6

Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove from pan; place on a serving plate.

Step 7

Brush rum syrup over cake; let stand 10 minutes. Repeat twice, reserving 1/3 cup rum syrup for serving. Spoon whipped topping and reserved rum syrup over slices of cake.
