Butter Rum “L’chaim” Cake

Written by chanie on February 28th, 2012

I don’t remember where or when my mother got this recipe. All I know is, it’s been in my family for years. Since it’s soaked in rum, we aptly call it the L’chaim cake. Whenever there is cause for a simcha, we make this cake and send it over to our family or friends who are celebrating.

While I wouldn’t normally bake with a cake mix, this recipe is the exception. It’s so easy to prepare, you’ll want to start making it for all your family get-together’s too. Your Purim seudah is the perfect place to start.

  1. That’s really funny- My mother also has been making this cake for years! you can find the recipe on the Duncan Hines website, but I am pretty sure she clipped it years ago from a Good Housekeeping magazine. I love it : )

    Hi Chanie,

    could you please post your mother’s original recipe of this cake? It would be really useful, as I don’t use cake mixes which are available in our supermarkets.

    Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards from Latvia.
