Pour cake batter into prepared loaf pan and bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

Combine equal amounts of sugar and rum in a sauce pan. Reduce until darkened in color, thick and syrupy. Also delicious over vanilla ice cream or added to an after-dinner holiday coffee (top with whipped cream and call it dessert!).
