  • 3/4 cups - butter
  • 2 - eggs
  • 1 - egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons - baking powder
  • 1/2 cups - milk
  • 1/4 cups - light rum
  • 2 - vanilla beans
  • 3/4 cups - granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cups - packed brown sugar
  • - powdered sugar
  • Directions:

    1. Allow butter, eggs and egg yolk to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, generously grease and lightly flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside. In a small bowl stir together flour and baking powder. In a medium bowl combine milk and rum. Using the tip of a small sharp knife, scrape out seeds from vanilla beans. Stir in vanilla bean seeds into milk mixture; set aside.

    2. Preheat oven to 325° F. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar and brown sugar, beating about 10 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs and egg yolk; beat for 1 minute. Alternately add flour mixture and milk mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.

    3. Bake about 45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan; cool completely on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

    Do not sprinkle cake with powdered sugar after cooling. Wrap cooled cake in plastic wrap; overwrap tightly with foil. Freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight at room temperature; before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
