>TWD: Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes


This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was super easy and very tasty: two thumbs up!! The Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes were picked by Wendy of Pink Stripes.

I took the cake to work and forgot to take pictures when I set them up, so by the time I finally remembered that I still had to photograph the cake there was only half a slice left!!

The only problem I had with this cake: there wasn’t enough of it!!! I should have never halved the recipe!!
The recipe can found over at Pink Stripes. Go visit the LYL to see what my fellow TWD-ers thought of the Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes.

    >An empty plate is always a good sign… and the last piece always hangs around the longest people no one wants to take the last piece.

    >This was VERY good. Definitely a repeat here. But with GOOD rum next time. Yes, 1/2 recipe just isn't enough.

    >Yea, I'm your first comment on the vanilla cake! I was going to make this tonight and had to go to a funeral viewing instead so no TWD for me this week. Your cake must have been really tasty to have gotten eaten up so quickly. I was excited to try this and will have to make it soon. Maybe for the weekend coming up.

    >So glad you enjoyed it! And isn't half a cake slice better than no cake at all? 😉

    >I made half also. You are fortunate, you shared it. This one was just for us.The second photo shows how delicate it can appear. There is something about that picture, I love.

    >I love it! Something about these photos looks so festive and "after the party"ish–the crumbs are like confetti.

    >New rule: never cut a pound cake recipe in half. That will serve us in good stead for the rest our our lives.

    >I also wish I had not halved the recipe! Next time I will bake two loaves! 🙂

    >Wow, you know it's a hit when you hardly get a photo! I made half and sort of wish I'd made an extra to have in the freezer.
