Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes

How does Tuesday come around so quickly? Maybe it's just me but I feel like the summer is flying by. Oh well, I plan on enjoying every minute of my time off from school and that includes baking with the Tuesdays with Dorie group. This weeks recipe is Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes and it was chosen by Wendy of Pink Stripes.

This is a very nice little cake that has a dense texture. It is very much like a pound cake. After it is baked a syrup of water, sugar and rum is poured over it. Sitting overnight makes it flavorful, moist and wonderful. I think that it would great served with some fresh berries.

Would be a perfect base for some fruit. But it was good alone too.

Lovely picture.
