Rum – raisin bundt cake

A unique, sweet and delicate cake with a distinctive taste of rum and raisins. We loved it from the first piece. I also baked the version with raisins and whiskey and… I do not know which one is better ;). The cake is very delicate after baking, so it is best to bake it the day before. I took the pictures just after baking. I would recommend it!

Ingredients for the rum–raisin bundt cake:

  • 200 g raisins
  • 120 ml dark rum
  • 220 g butter
  • 180 g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • half a tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 175 g soured cream

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

In a small saucepan, put raisins and pour rum. Bring to a boil for a few minutes, then remove from the hob and set aside for 1 hour or until all the alcohol soaks into the raisins.

Cream the butter and the sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (the batter will curdle slightly at this step, but it won’t make any difference to the finished cake). Add sifted flour, baking powder and cinnamon, then the soured cream. Stir with a spatula until just combined. Add the soaked raisins and stir.

Prepare a 23 cm diameter bundt tin, butter and sprinkle with flour, shake off the excess flour. Spoon in the batter and level the top with a spoon.

Bake at 170ºC, preferably without a fan, for 50 minutes or longer or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and cool. Decorate with caramel icing.

Caramel icing:

  • 60 g butter
  • 80 g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1Tbsp dark rum
  • 100 g powdered sugar

Melt the butter in a small pot. Add the sugar and continue to cook for about a minute, stirring constantly, to combine these ingredients. Add milk and bring to a boil. Remove from the hob and add rum, then cool to room temperature. After this time, mix the powdered sugar with the back of the spoon until thick and smooth.
