Jamaican black cake, also described as Jamaican rum cake or Jamaican fruit cake, is a dark, liquored cake packed with lots of mixed fruits, spices and tons of flavour. To get the rich dark colour of the cake, Jamaicans use what is known as browning, caramelised brown sugar, which is either homemade or store-bought. The mixed fruit: dried raisins, cherries, currants, and prunes, are soaked in white rum and red wine. After baking, a bit of the rum mixture is poured over the cake for even more flavor.

Divine Treats Rum Cake was absolutely the best choice! It was utterly delicious, freshly made, and the entire process was so easy. Your special occasions are accentuated by this divine intervention of spices! This cake’s texture is smooth, fruity, and did not crumble! The packaging was flawless! My girlfriends enjoyed it with red wine. Definitely continuing to order from here for our special dessert celebrations!
