A beautiful apple cake with pecans is made then served with a hot rum sauce making an warming winter dessert. The cakes can be made ahead of time if desired.
I dared to exchange the rum flavoring for the real thing, medium priced golden rum. It was delish! I scaled it down to 8 servings too, cause I wanted to share with family and friends, and not have too much left over, in case I got midnight cravings. heehee - 23 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Oh My Goodness this is so good. I didn't have any rum flavoring or butter flavoring so I used 1/2 c real butter and 1/2 cup margarine and 2+ tsp real rum for sauce. This sauce is really good over vanilla ice cream too. I used Fuji Apples and pecans. YUMMO. It did take another 10 minutes to cook and I used a Pyrex dish so I was surprised it took longer. - 22 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Oh my goodness! I substituted walnuts for the pecans and didn't use the butter flavoring... but oh, my... what a wonderful thing! At first I was a bit nervous because the batter was quite stiff - more like a dough than a batter. My company LOVED this. My daughter insisted that folks try it without the sauce (or whip cream!) stating it was just as yummy without. She was right! Thanks for a great recipe! - 18 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
