Many books have been banned on the basis that there are discussions of alcohol. Examples include Animal Farm , The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and The Catcher in the Rye.
Demon Rum seems like a great ingredient to go with Banned Books Week. I recently made an Apple and Rum Cake. Now, I’m skipping the fruit and making just rum cakes. (This recipe has banana liqueur, so maybe I’m not skipping the fruit after all.)
One of my Christmas gifts last year was a mini bundt pan. I have tried several different cakes, but these Mini Rum Cakes have been my favorite so far. The combination of rum and banana liqueur in both the cake and the rum syrup is scrumptious. They would be perfect to serve at book club, a shower, holiday meal, or just because.
