Ich liebe shokoladen rum kuchen. Es ist rum, schokolade und kuchen, was gibt es nicht zu lieben.
For those who’s command on the German language is as poor as mine or worse, don’t worry about it – chocolate rum cake is life, and that’s all that matters. If you’ve never had a rum cake before, this schokoladen rum kuchen will give you a new lease on life.
One of my favorite and it seems a bit obscure desserts, is rum cake. They’re really hard to find (good ones I should say), and even the recipes online are hit or miss. Then you add in chocolate to a rum cake search, and you’re s.o.l. This recipe is fast, easy, and will keep you coming back for more. I can’t help but think of the cliche, “Easy and coming back for more, but fast, I ain’t”…or is it easy? These are the questions I don’t want answers to. Instead I say, “Give me cake”.
There’s many things I love about this chocolate rum cake, but my two favorites are: 1. It’s perfect to make for the holidays. 2. The mais mehl, or cornmeal. It helps to soak up the rum syrup while stopping the cake from turning into a mushy dense mess. I’m not one for terribly sweet desserts. So, this one is perfect with a cup of ginger tea, coffee, or even an espresso.
I normally end up sprinkling a bit of sugar over the top of the cake to make the cut slices better looking. If for some reason schokoladen rum kuchen isn’t your thing, or you’re on a bundt rampage, check out our coffee cake.
