Rum cake is my sister's favorite cake. I will make it the next time she comes to visit. Thanks for the gorgeous recipe.

Yummy! That looks delicious. I remember the Bacardi rum cake with the cake mix. There is also a version with bourbon. I bet your cake would work either way!

I aways used to make rum cakes for Christmas. I think I'll try this one this year. I love rum cake. Thanks for the recipe. Julie

This is the low carb one. The high carb one is on the playground. It's really good lc.

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 11-22-2010 10:54 AM

Rose, I know the high carb one and it is decadent,but I will try yours. Do you think they compare favorably. Julie

Can you use butter instead of butter crisco? crisco is so scary!

rosethorns 11-22-2010 03:44 PM

You are more than welcome to tweak any way you want. crisco is not scary. there is no trans fat. I'm sure you can use butter or oil. There are some things I use crisco for . This and pie crust.

Scottsdalejulie........I think they are close , but they have personality their own. I really like the LC one because thats what I plan to eat from now on. I froze most of it.

I only made the high carb one for DH and my neighbor and the playground.

Try it you'll love it.

I should also explain that the sauce has to stay as written because you need the bulk of the 2 sweeteners and butter to make a thick sauce.

OMG, it's like you read my mind today!! I was thinking about my Grandma's rum cake with the cannoli frosting and sliced almonds in the middle and here is your recipe!!

Thanks so much, look totally yummy! :high5::clap::kicking:

rosethorns 11-22-2010 10:15 PM


Recipe for the cannoli frosting pleazzzzzzzz.

TIA Esther

Beeb 11-23-2010 08:26 AM

This is for Cannoli Cream to stuff in a Cannoli Pastry, but I have used this as a frosting in between cake before. Sometimes you need to "thin" it a bit but otherwise it works great!


Cannolli Stuffing:

2 pounds ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups sugar sub
2 ts ground cinnamon
1/4 cup diced orange peel, minced ( I don't use this, don't like the taste)
1 ts grated lemon peel ( don't use this either, just don't like the citrus thing)
2 ounces sugar free chocolate, chopped to look like chips ( or use the sugar free chips, they are great)

1. Beat cheese in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add sugar sub and cinnamon; beat at high speed 3 minutes. Add orange and lemon (if using) to cheese mixture; mix will. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. In the rum cake application you can put this on the cake and THEN refrigerate. Also, this is where the sliced almonds would come in. They are put on the frosting around the cake, not in it, like I originally posted (memory fails at times ;))

Ester, that really looks & sounds good! (Rum is the only alcohol that I care for the taste of. Tho I don't like a lot of that either.) Was thinking I had made a Bacardi Rum cake before (HC version), and that this sounded nothing like it. Then I realized that it was a Piņa Colada cake I had made. (Years ago!)

Linda, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who doesn't like citrus peel or zest! :high5:

Oh lordy... I've been wanting to make a rum cake for ages. And someon gifted me with a fine bottle of Appleton Jamaican Rum Reserve.

I might have to experiment with 1/2 the recipe using regular rum before I use the good stuff. ;)

jigglenomore 12-07-2010 04:14 AM

Thanks, Rose for the lovely cake, and beeb, for the great cannoli frosting recipe! You ladies rock!! :hugs:

cgarza 12-07-2010 10:28 AM

I would love to make this, but need to know the carb count before I do. Can anyone tell us how many carbs????

jbatchelor 12-07-2010 06:39 PM

I have a question--on the rum sauce--what are the measurements on the erythyritol and the diabeti ? Thanks in advance for the answer--didnt want to guess.

1/2 cup of diabeti sweet
