n a large bowl cream sugar, eggs, butter, and buttermilk together with mixer. Add flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla or rum and mix. Pour batter into a well-sprayed bundt pan or pan of your choice.
Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes until done. Let cool in the pan at least 30 minutes before removing.
Rum Sauce Instructions
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until fully melted. Do not boil! Pour over cake.
I take a skewer and poke holes in the cake, then use a turkey baster to put sauce into holes but you can just pour it over the cake. The cake will soak up the sauce.
