ISO: The Little Pie Shoppe 'Rum Cake" Recipe

LJS | Jan 10, 200812:30 PM     43

This is only for those with LONG memories, but I thought I would give it a go. There was an excellent bakery on the west side of Yonge Street, near St. Clements, about 6 blocks north of Eglinton, for 50 years. It closed in the early 90's after selling second-rate baked goods under the same name for about 3 years before that.

The original Little Pie Shoppe had marvelous stuff including this very simple but excellent rum cake with a buttercream frosting and a single cherry as decoration on top. It was my family's birthday special for many, many years and I would love to bake it for my husband.

Anybody have any idea about this?
