Curious, as you are gluten-free, do you bake this GF? My son and I were just diagnosed gluten-intolerant so I am trying to figure out this baking thing now with GF flours and xanthan gum, etc. Thanks!! ~ Katrina

I didn’t see where you added the chopped almonds. Did I miss something?

I also didn’t catch when to add the nuts. I just added them in the finished mixture and tossed folded them around. Also I’m not too sure what to do with the cake after it is finished. Usually you let cakes sit for at least 10 minutes to cool to make for an easier glide out of the cake but this says to immediately sprinkle the rum once you take it out from the oven…. Then jumps into sprinkle the top with powdered sugar…. So I sprinkle the rum on the bottom of the cake and then immediately flip it over and cover with powdered sugar?… I don’t let it sit for any bit to cool?..
