Every so often, Robbin Slocum, wife of our Managing Editor Ed Newton, treats the editorial department to one of her delicious rum cakes. These things are no joke. First off, they're doused in enough tasty, fermented cane that if you had a post gustatory smoke after eating a slice you'd be in danger of losing your eyebrows. Secondly, all that rum makes for one moist, dense piece of cake. It's just the right amount of sweet, and the crushed walnuts on top level it out with the perfect, savory crunch. Robbin, please don't ever quit.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, Robbin constructed not a bundt -shaped cake, as she usually does, but a form far more... seasonal.

Alas, I didn't have a piece this time, as the cake was promised to our Art Director who had performed favors untold for it. But we will have our cake, and eat it too, by God!  We promise to pry the recipe from Robbin and post it here soon, readers.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
