The Real Caribbean Rum Cake
WE SIMPLY DO CARIBBEAN CAKES RIGHT
It is believed that what we refer today as the "Caribbean Rum Cake" is used in some African countries and was brought to the islands in the mid-seventeenth century. Research has shown very little about the origins of this Rum Cake, however, Europeans have also influenced the evolving of this Cake. Rum Cakes are very popular in the entire Caribbean region. The are always served at Christmas, christenings, weddings, and even wakes.
The Caribbean Rum Cake is also known as Caribbean Fruit Cake, or by the addition of burnt sugar "Black Cake". Depending on the Island you are from the cake is known as Black Cake, Christmas Pudding, Great Cake, Wedding Cake, Grooms Cake or Fruit Cake. Some people may know it as Jamaican Black Cake or Bajan Black, called by any name, this cake remains the celebratory cake that speaks to the culture and essence of the Caribbean people everywhere.
