Rum is not often served as a drink in Italy. But it is widely used as ingredient in many desserts such as this rum cake.

Here’s one of the most important recipes of the middle Italy, usually served for breakfast, that is perfect as a base for other dessert, or to be eaten with tea or even be enriched with chocolate or any other ingredient, based on your preference.


The ingredients for this recipe are:

  • 300 gr. Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • 170 gr. White Sugar
  • 120 gr. Vegetable Seeds Oil
  • 150 gr. Milk 1 Orange Peel (grated)
  • 100 gr. Rum (Dark Rum is better)
  • 1 tsp Sodium Bicarbonate
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 30 gr. Butter
  • 50 gr. Almond Flour (optional)
  • The equipment needed for this recipe is:

  • Medium Sized Cake Mold

  • To prepare this recipe:

    1.- Start by pouring the powdered ingredients together in a medium sized bowl, so proceed to add the flour, the sugar and the grated orange peel.

    2.- Add the baking powder and the sodium bicarbonate and start mixing.

    3.- Now add all of the eggs, and mix the dough while also pouring in the vegetable seeds oil.

    4.- Add the remaining milk and rum, and mix until there are no more chunks left in the dough.

    5.- Spread the butter on a cake mold, and pour the dough in it.

    6.- Cook in a preheated oven at 160°C for 40 minutes.

    If the cake starts to become golden brown stop the cooking process.
