Jamaican Rum Cake Recipe | Chelsea SugarAt least 2 days before baking, combine prunes, raisins, currants, cherries, candied peel, rum and brandy in a glass jar or sturdy plastic container. Cover tightly; shake or stir occasionally. When ready to bake, put soaked fruit and almonds in a blender or food processor; work in batches that the machine can handle. Grind to a rough paste, leaving some chunks of fruit intact. Add a little brandy or wine if needed to loosen mixture in the machine. If burning sugar, place a deep, heavy-bottomed pot over high heat. Add 1 cup white or light brown sugar, and melt, stirring with a wooden spoon.

Thanks so much Alica. Let sugar cool before adding to cake. Once fruit is combined, add flour. Most helpful. The fruit mixture is added to cake batter along with aromatic flavorings and warm spices!
Recipe by: Sharon. A yummy, rummy Bundt cake with a simple butter-rum glaze. I used this recipe and it came out just as I wanted it. I love it and it is just like the Christmas cake my mother bakes in Jamaica. I live in the U.
