For some people, a good rum cake at Christmas is a must. This is also a good choice for gift giving and sharing. Use good quality rum. If you don’t know how to select, you can find help at your neighborhood liquor store.

I prefer using walnuts in this recipe, but that is strictly a matter of taste. To me they just seem to go well with the rum. This cake will keep many weeks in a tight container and stay moist if rum is poured over occasionally.

Preheat oven to 350° and assemble all ingredients before proceeding.

Thoroughly cream ½ cup softened butter (or margarine) and 1 cup sugar.
Add 3 eggs, stirring well.

Sift 1 cup flour with:
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
Dash of salt

Add a little at a time to egg mixture, stirring after each addition.

Add 2 ounces rum.

Flour 2 cups raisins and stir in with 2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts.

Pour into a well greased 9 inch tube pan. Bake at 350° about 70 minutes.
