Cuban Drunk Pound Cake Cake Emborrachado
By Three Guys From Miami


Prep time: 20 minutes

This cake gets drunk on rum, so you don't have to.



INGREDIENTS:

Cake:

12 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 egg whites
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour, sifted
2 tablespoons butter, softened for greasing the pan.

Syrup:

4 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/4 cup sweet wine, Spanish Jerez, or a good rum
1 stick cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

I'm sorry that I just saw this. Hopefully it isn't too late!

 

I have a good friend who is Cuban and always brings Cuban food for me to try. She linked this recipe to me and told me that "Cuban cake" is "tres leches" cake. Here's the link: http://www.tasteofcuba.com/tresleches.html

 

I remember tasting this once and did not like the texture at all. It was way too moist for me.

Good luck and I hope this isn't too late of a response!
