• 4 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 10 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. instant coffee, diluted in 1 tsp. water
  • 4 tbsp. cocoa
  • 2 tsp. rum extract or 4 tbsp. dark rum


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whip eggs with sugar until pale and fluffy, add melted butter, whip more. Add milk, half rum flavoring and mix on high until fluffy. Into buttered and floured bundt form pan, place half of the batter. Add cocoa and the rest of the rum to the second half of batter, mix well. Pour over first half of batter, swirl a knife through both batters at once. The dark batter is heavier and will fall during baking. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes, test cake with wooden skewer. Instead of bundt form, you can use bread loaves forms or large cup cakes. Decrease baking time with size. serve with butter, ice cream or by itself. Microwave cold cake slices 15 sec. for that freshly baked taste.
