When I turned 21, my mom made me a rum cake for my birthday. Yep, a cake made with rum and soaked in rum. She lit it on fire, and I blew out the cake. Pretty cool huh? Well, once the fire was out we ate the cake. It was tasty indeed, but a bit dry. I brought the remaining cake home with me and really wanted to eat it…but it needed something. I thought about smothering it with whipped cream. But, alas I had no cream in the fridge. I did have some coconut cream, however, and I also had some chocolate in the freezer. Chocolate ganache anyone? Oh yeah, rum cake and chocolate ganache are a match made in heaven!
This recipe is SO SO easy. All you need is 2 ingredients and a few minutes. Perfect for cake, brownies, cookies, ice cream, or any other sweet treat. Try not to eat the entire batch in one sitting. I dare you!
