This week's selection was made by the lovely Wendy of Pink Stripes. This was a dense, substantial cake, kind of like pound cake. Very good and very easy to make... even depite the fact that I ran out of baking powder and had to do the good old baking soda + cream of tartar substitution. :)
Me not being a fan of using alcohol in cooking or baking (just a quirk of mine... can't really explain it), I omitted the "rum-drenched" part of this recipe. Instead, I added a cup of raspberries. While I loved the bright burst of tangy flavor they gave the cake, I wasn't quite so fond of the funny color they tinted the rest of the loaf. Next time I'll have to toss them in flour before adding them and also be sure to fold them in a little more gently. The recipe can be found on Wendy's blog.
