This week we made a Triple Rum Black Pepper Cake, and it might be my favorite recipe yet. It was very easy to make, I had all of the ingredients on hand, and man is it delicious. I was a little bit worried about the addition of black pepper, but thought I would give it a try.
Honestly I couldn’t taste it at all, so I might just omit it next time that I make this. And I am definitely planning on making it again. I cut down on the amount of syrup and glaze a little bit, but I feel like it came out really well. It was also not overwhelmingly sweet, which I enjoyed.
I thought the amount of booze was perfect, you could enjoy the rum flavor without any harshness. I can see where this cake could lend itself well to variations using other kinds of booze, like limoncello, coconut, kahlua whiskey…mmm.
