Personal Notes:
(I have this one (in Mama’s handwriting) and can’t think about this cake without smiling about my Mama and her love of rum! She may not have imbibed except on holidays but when she did, the weapon of choice was usually rum. We all will remember the Christmas in Florida when Mama got Amanda to fix the eggnog! When she added a cup of rum to a cup of eggnog, everybody headed to the kitchen to correct the proportions and dilute the drinks. We didn’t notice that Mama didn’t make the correction until a short time later when Terrell had to help Mama to bed. Maybe she was “incapacitated” but she was certainly happy about it.
