Alma Hackney's Rum Cake (A House Specialty!)
Choose your Delivery Date at Check Out!

So you think you're not a rum cake lover? Well, neither did we until we tried this RTB favorite, and all we could say was "WOW!" And we're not the only ones—the New York Times, Southern Living and Garden & Gun magazines all love Red Truck Bakery's rum cake: a little bit of rum inside a buttery yellow cake, with a rum glaze brushed all over—enough to soak through and still put a crackly finish on top. Here's how the story goes: Alma Hackney, Brian's buddy Dwight’s church choir director, made a mean rum cake for her friends—she’d send Dwight’s dad into the store for the booze while she waited in the car. Alma’s gone now but left her recipe with Brian, who promised not to change a thing.

This is the perfect reflection of Southern Virginia Rum Cakes at their finest. It is a moist cake with rum throughout the cake not over done and simply stated.

Been ordering this for several years and never disappointed. Cake is always fresh and moist with just a hint of rum, it's not overpowering. Great with berries and whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or on its own. My family's favorite item from Red Truck...though you can't go wrong with anything from Red Truck. They're all delicious!

This is a tasty, high-quality product that reminds me of pound cake in its appearance and texture. It makes a good breakfast cake as well as a general dessert. My only complaint is that there is very little rum flavor.

Perhaps it was my mistake; I thought that this cake would be "drenched" in rum. Only the very top of the cake had a rum flavor. While the cake itself is delicious, I don't think it has earned the name of a "rum cake."

This cake should be a staple whenever cake is needed- birthday, holidays, Wednesdays, etc. I do not like rum cake and this is seriously the best cake ever. I don't live anywhere close to VA and I ship this cake all over the country...especially to myself. Treat yourself.

I recently purchased this cake for my husband's birthday and my sister's birthday. Both cakes were absolutely phenomenal! I think my sister will be a customer now that she received this cake as a surprise.

An awesome cake! Great flavor to the cake and the light glaze. In the summer we serve with fresh berries and it's an incredible dessert. Also makes an excellent gift - everyone enjoys, it's nicely packaged and the shipping is really low to my relatives on the east coast.
