Momma’s and Libby’s Christmas rum cake

Nancy P.Nancy P. Barry

This cake has become a Barry family tradition, although it came from mom’s family. Her first cousin Lib Maxwell sent it to her one Christmas. Now my brother, Don, makes them every Christmas and gives them to friends as well as to us. Even though it is very sweet, a little piece with some ice cream is divine.
