Notes

  • Whoever doesn’t mind a little more alcohol: Brush the cake with rum as soon as you remove it from the oven. Make small holes using a toothpick or thin skewer. Feed the cake with rum by pouring a few teaspoons every week. When done, cover it with parchment paper. You can do these 2 – 3 weeks before Christmas, skipping the last week. There’s no need to refrigerate the cake with this amount of alcohol.
  • You can substitute unsweetened orange juice for the rum if you don’t like booze. Refrigerate the fruit after it is soaked in juice. Bake the cake as directed.
  • Eggs can be substituted with yogurt if you don’t eat eggs 1 egg = 4 tablespoons of yogurt.
