So the hubby and I were watching cupcake wars on Netflix and it made me want to bake something. So I decided to use my bundt cake pan and try to make a rum cake.
I had to search forever for a recipe that did not have cake mix and instant pudding it it. I mean almost all the recipes called for it.
Finally I found a recipe for Homemade Chocolate Rum Cake over at Always order Dessert. It was so simply and all from scratch. Never making a rum cake before, I was sad when I found out I had to let it soak. But boy am I glad I did.

I followed the recipe pretty closely and just cahnging a few things. I used dark chocolate instead of bitter sweet and Pumpkin Spice Kahlua instead of Rum. We also made this Vanilla Pudding.
|Seasonal Kahlua my hubby had to have.|
So this morning we woke up, ground up some fresh coffee and had ourselves a piece of cake.
(dont judge you know you have all done it before).
IT WAS AMAZING!!! So moist! Not soggy or to sweet!
|Isnt it so pretty!|
We had so much left over that we cut it up and flash froze it to save for later. I am excited to see how this will be from the freezer!
So if you want to make this head over here :)
