    Great recipe. I’ve never had a rum cake before, but it seems like a great desert idea.

    You had me at pecans and rum. I bet this would be totally delicious as a holiday treat around Thanksgiving and Christmas!

    This looks like a great recipe! I wonder how hard it would be to find a sugar-free cake mix that doesn’t have aspartame … I’m allergic, but many sugar-free things have aspartame as the sugar substitute. Ah, well. I suppose if I couldn’t find a sugar-free variety, I could just go with the regular. You know, just this once. *wink*

    I didn’t know that a rum cake could be lightened up! I’ll need to try this sometime. Thanks for sharing your recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

    Skinny, Lightened-Up Puerto Rican Rum Cake looks so delicious and easy to make. I am always looking for healthier versions of recipes to try.

    I’m intrigued by sugar free cakes at the moment and am planning some experimentation of my own soon . I love that the sweetness must come mainly from the glaze. It sounds really delicious!

    This looks great, and I love the idea of bringing a lightened-up favorite to a gathering – doing everyone a favor on multiple levels! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow – what a stunner this is! Loving those pecans on the bottom/top – and so love that you don’t tell your fam and friends that you “snatched”a recipe and made it healthier till after their first bites!

    I have always loved rum cake — it’s probably one of my favorite treats — especially with the crunchy pecan crown!

    Yep, I feel just the same around holidays! Like it’s expected that I’ll make something. I mean, I usually do and I don’t really mind, but I often have a few days where I’m like “Aghh what do I make?!?!” – this cake looks beautiful though and I just love that it’s skinny! I have a wedding dress to fit into soon, but I still want to enjoy cake!

    I can’t believe you can get a skinny version of a rum cake. What a brilliant recipe
