This rich cake is easy to put together and has just a touch of booze from the glaze. To make it, beat together butter, sugar, and eggs, add in the dry ingredients and sour cream, and bake for about an hour. Once it’s cooled, pour on the rum glaze and let it set. When you’re ready to serve, give it a dusting of powdered sugar.
For the glaze (optional):
Beverage pairing: 1999 Hetszolo Tokaji Aszu 3 Puttonyos, Hungary. A heavenly glass of botrytis-affected Tokaji from Hungary would be the decadent choice for this spicy cake. Notes of dried caramel, orange peel, and honey match up with the nutty and spice-box nuances of this dessert.
