Jude's Kansas City Rum Cake

For the sweet tooth

For over a decade, Craig Adcock and his wife, Teresa, have been making, quite simply, the best rum cake in Kansas City. Adcock is also the owner of Table Ocho, a private dining experience in Lenexa, Kansas, but this time of year he is knee deep in rum cake. Jude's Kansas City Rum Cakes are named after Craig’s mother-in-law, Jude, and it was with her help that he mastered this rum cake recipe many years ago following a trip to Panama. He uses only premium ingredients, the finest rum (he is now making his own house brand) and pecans sourced from a small orchard in Missouri. This rum cake is dense but is also light and soft, melting like butter with just the right amount of rum and the crunch of local pecans. The cakes come vacuum-sealed and will stay fresh for 15 to 25 days; they also freeze very well. The rum cakes are available in large, small, mini and teaser sizes and range in price from $55 to $15.
