The history of the rum cake is fascinating. When researching the origins of rum cake, I learned that the recipe, inspired by figgy pudding and other steamed puddings popular before the 16th century in the United Kingdom. The Rum cake recipe was invented in honor of steamed pudding by early settlers who arrived in the Caribbean. The method for steamed pudding is complicated, and most amateur cooks weren’t fond of following all of the steps.

If everyone is still watching it, get your sexy on with fruit for your Valentine Desserts

Caramelized Pears are elegant, easy, and delicious when paired with vanilla ice cream. These are very pretty, too, especially sliced over a bowl of ice cream. Pears are soft and packed with natural sugars that caramelize during cooking. Bring richness to the treat that your Valentine will love. You can also poach pears! Poaching fruit deeply imbues the flavor of all the ingredients in the pan and heightens the rich natural sweetness found in the flesh of the pear. Our Poached Pears are done with a bit of brandy and vanilla and are great served warm or cold.

Honey Poached Pears

We make these honey poached pears with 10 ingredients. A little honey, vanilla, lemon juice, and brandy bring big flavor from farm to table.
