Theresa said...

This sounds like something my husband would really enjoy. I'm not a big fan of anything that contains alcohol, but my husband does like it in baked goods. I'll have to save this recipe for next years baking. Thanks for sharing!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am here smiling Theresa because I do not drink alcohol so we do not use much wine or rum in those we bake at home. I was even saying to my mum I wish we could make it without alcohol. I have tried some puddings baked by others and the rum was so strong that I felt scared!LOL Enjoy the rest of your day.
