I love this recipe, and I have to make it every year. It's become a holiday tradition!

Christmas Rum Cake
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 cup water
1 tsp. Salt
1 cup brown sugar
Lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 bottle rum
2 cups dried fruit

Sample the rum to check quality. Take a large bowl; check the rum again to be sure it is of the highest quality. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, it is best to make sure the rum is still OK. Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck iin the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the rum to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the rum. Now shift the lemon ice strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 s and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the rum and wipe the counter with the cat.

Yummy! Bailey's is expensive. But oh so good. If I made it, I would have to drink the whole thing - hubby doesn't care for it. How long does it keep? I don't drink much and I really would be under the bed or passed out on the couch! LOL. Then who would make Christmas dinner? I got some for my oldest son last year and a middle sized bottle was over $40.00. Needless to say, he got a smaller one. Your site is really nice Sandy.
