Does anyone have a recipe for Italian rum cake?
Are you looking for a sponge cake with cannoli filling or with pastry cream?
I've used this recipe:
It is a complicated recipe to make.....so many steps!
I ended up making it and determining it wouldn't work under the giant fondant cake I was making for a huge yankee stadium cake. So I adapted it by using a sponge cake recipe, chocolate SMBC and vanilla SMBC (instead of the custards). And I didn't water down my rum- I didn't think it was strong enough, so I just used straight rum with a little sugar.
If you're going for an authentic rum cake though, then this recipe will do....but the cake is too light for stacking and fondant.
Italian rum cake?? I wanna try this too since I didn't know this recipe but I will help you too since you are interesting for this so that we can share each others recipe. Would that be okay?
Janicedale that's fine.
Debbye27 thanks for the recipe. I will try that one. I wanted to stack the cakes so it will need to be strong enough enough to hold the tiers. However, the traditional recipe will be great for a regular layer cake.
Gbbaker, I'm not sure which filling is in the traditional rum cakes....I'm assuming it's custard.
traditonally in my family we use a cannoli filling and its covered in a whipped cream usually with toasted shaved almonds on the outside of the cake
To make this cake stackable, use ganache filling. Sprinkle generously with dark rum straight from the bottle. Chill it overnight after stacking and before carving.
