Tasting Notes: Jude's Rum Cake
Premium ingredients make all the difference.
If you haven't tried rum cake before, then let Jude's rum cake set the standard. And if you have eaten this dessert previously, treat your taste buds to this premium version. The select use of high quality ingredients make all the difference in each bite.
Craig Adcock, the local food entrepreneur behind Jude's Rum Cake and Belly Up BBQ, creates his version of rum cake based on a recipe that he and his mother-in-law Jude mastered after a trip to Panama. Their use of Haitian rum and pecans sourced from a small orchard in Mississippi elevate this cake to premium status. Dense with a light texture, the hint of rum permeates each mouthful without overpowering the senses. It's difficult to stop at just one slice.
The large 4-pound version yields 16 mighty slices and the smaller size (2-pound) is perfect for more modest appetites. They also bake and sell mini muffin-size and two-bite teaser rum cakes. While the cakes carry a premium price tag for the top-notch ingredients, these dessert are worth splurging on for a holiday party or as a unique gift.
For the sake of convenience, fine food lovers can order online and have the rum cake shipped to your home or anywhere in the continental U.S..
