Bourbon Rum Cake
In the town of Port Royal, Jamaica, during a time of debauchery and mayhem, sat Wicked Jack’s Tavern. Frequented by any number of questionable characters, the establishment was named after Wicked Jack Scarborough, a mysterious gent and original proprietor who founded the tavern and disappeared suddenly without a trace weeks after opening.
Taking over the helm was a robust, old widow known to locals as “Ol Gran.” She was a cousin of Jack Scarborough and a popular underground spirits dealer, who, despite her kindly demeanor, drew a hard line with her clientele. Even the harshest patrons considered cleaning up their act, a small cost to pay for the opportunity to indulge in some of her specialties, including her rum cake.
Legend has it that Ol Gran tweaked the cake recipe from time to time when her rum shipments were delayed. With a direct connection from Kentucky, she was able to acquire some of the best bourbons from that area, which she added to her cakes when needed. One day, she accidentally added more bourbon than rum. The cake was so decadent and flavorful that it was added to the tavern’s menu. As the years go on, we continue Ol Gran’s legacy and bring you the most delicious cakes to your table. Even if you’ve never sailed the seven seas, you can still taste the legendary goodness in every bite of our Wicked Jack’s Tavern True Jamaican Bourbon Rum Cake.
