Hair of the Dog Cake: Baked Sunday Mornings

Here it is the new year already!  I can't believe how fast 2014 flew by!  I had quite a few good things happen to me this past big was that I lost 70 pounds!  Never thought I would be able to do that! 

Pretty cool huh?

Way cool in my book.  While I still have a ways to go I am very proud of the progress that I made last year.  I have been working very hard at achieving this goal so I haven't been baking as much as I have in the past.  But I so love to bake!  I don't know why something I enjoy doing so much has to be so bad for me.  I have practiced moderation and am trying to only have one taste of whatever I bake.  Oh my gosh, that is so hard sometimes.  But so far I have been able to be pretty much in control.
Well enough of that...on to the Hair of the Dog Cake!

This is a milk cake infused with Rum.  Then topped with a sugary rum syrup that is place under the broiler to get all crackly and brown.  It is really very good!  I took to a party and got it out of the house!  Whew!  That could have been very dangerous!  This cake could be very addictive!

I halved the recipe and baked it in a long vintage loaf pan that I had.  It worked really well.  I love how the rum syrup oozed into the cake.  This recipe is the second one I have baked from Baked Occasions.  Both have been delicious! To see what the other bakers did just click here.

Next up is Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar...sounds like a good one!

Until then


  1. Wow! Congratulations on your weight loss achievements! Your cake looks awesome and it's good to know it works perfectly halved. :)

  2. I love your long cake-- what a great shape! Your weight loss is very impressive, Chelly-- congrats! I've been trying to get back in shape myself after ankle surgery, and it is not easy to get back into the swing of things. And yes, it sure is a struggle with all the baking!! I ask myself that same question all the time... ;-)

  3. Congratulations on the weight loss. That is fantastic and a great inspiration. And good for you baking this cake and getting it out of the house before it became too much of a temptation. It is very smart!
    This was a fabulous cake. Great idea to make it into a loaf.
