TWD: Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes

(Yeah, that's a big clump of the seeds from a vanilla bean...didn't quite get rubbed into the sugar all the way.)

Thank you to Wendy from the very super cute blog Pink Stripes for choosing this week's recipe.
Straight forward and to the point...the title says it all.

Lots of eggs, heavy cream and melted butter and the seeds from 2 whole vanilla beans...not to mention the rum. :)

I made 1 regular sized loaf and 3 mini loaves in disposable aluminum pans. I used most of the rum syrup on the regular sized loaf cake so that my kids could eat the mini loaves.

Very nice with a cup of coffee or tea....and tomorrow for breakfast. Toasted with a little jam???

YUM!

Stop by the TWD site to see what the others baked up.

Thanks for stopping by.

Your cake is distinguished with the seeds. Makes it one of a kind and a good one of a kind.

This is a good cake.

I used some vanilla sugar I had in my cupboard that I had made with vanilla beans. And, I used hazelnut syrup instead of rum. Yours looks perfect!
