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

Caramelized Pears are elegant, easy, and so delicious when paired with vanilla ice cream. These are very pretty too, especially sliced overtop of a bowl of ice cream.
