    Yum Cake from Fast Eddy

    By: Edward Rubin - May 10th, 2020

    One might say that the New York critic best known as Fast Eddy is a tad eccentric. When he came to visit in the Berkshires he sent a long list of ingredients. He came with a friend and invited two more from Connecticut. We were relegated to cleanup. For dessert he baked rum cake. The recipe is found here. It was indeed divine and we became friends with his friends. Typical of Fast the formatting here is as topsy turvy as it was sent.
