Rum Cake Recipe

Rum Cake

When I was 18 year old, and worked for Grumman Data Systems on the night shift.  I really think that it was the BEST job I ever had.  The night supervisor, was a lady named Verdell Myers, she was great to work for.  She was not only my boss…but she treated everyone like we were her daughter’s too.  Every time I see this Rum Cake Recipe…I will always think of Verdell.
