KENTUCKY BUTTER CAKE WITH RUM SAUCE


2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 sticks butter, softened
2 teaspoons rum, can use more(If you donít use alcohol, you can substitute vanilla extract or rum extract)
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
 
In 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                                                                          
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons rum, can use more (If you donít use alcohol, you can substitute vanilla extract or rum extract)
 
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until fully melted.  Do not boil!   Pour over cake.  (Note:  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.   YUMMY!   Enjoy!
