Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a standard bundt pan.
  • Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Beat the eggs with an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add the softened butter and the sugar and beat until creamy.
  • Beat in the Coca-Cola, rum, vanilla, and milk.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl, beating constantly until you have a smooth batter.
  • Pour the cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan. Bake approximately 45 to 60 minutes, or until the cake tests done.
  • Let the cake cool slightly, use a knife to work around the sides and center of the cake, and then invert the cake on a serving plate.
  • WHILE THE CAKE IS BAKING, MAKE THE SAUCE:
  • Bring the remaining 1 cup Coca-Cola, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Continue cooking at medium-high heat, stirring frequently until the syrup thickens.
  • Remove from heat and immediately stir in the butter and the rum.
  • Serve the cake warm, spooning plenty of sauce over each individual serving.
  • *Use only fresh, bubbly Coke, not "flat" Coke as called for in some recipes. The bubbles actually make a honeycomb effect in the finished cake.
  • Will add a photo (if I still have it) shortly.

    There are no fruits in this cake. I havent tried to put dried fruits in it. If you make it let us know how it turned out.
