This time, the cake has dates as one of the main ingredients but don’t worry, the baking procedure is almost similar with theĀ  Chocolate Rum Cake Recipe.

Rum Cakes can last longer than most cakes that’s why I love baking this recipe during Holiday season. If you want to bake and serve it this Christmas, here’s the easy Rum Cake baking procedure >>
