How to make it

  • Cream butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add 1 cup sugar beating until light and fluffy. Add orange and lemon rinds. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.
  • Sift together next 4 ingredients, and add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating until smooth. Stir in nuts.
  • Pour batter into a greased 9 or 10 inch tube pan. Bake in preheated 350 oven for about 1 hour or until tests done.
  • Meanwhile, strain juices into a saucepan. Add remaining 1 cup sugar and rum. When cake is done, remove from oven. Bring mixture to a boil, pour slowly over cake in pan. If cake does not absorb all of the mixture as it is poured, reserve remainder and spoon on later when served.
  • Let cake stand for a day or two before serving.
