  1. Butter or baking spray should be used to oil a pan as the oven is being preheated to 325°F. It should be lightly dusted with flour and set aside.
  2. Whisk the milk and vinegar in one bowl; combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in another bowl; and set both bowls aside.
  3. Butter and sugar are combined in a cream. The eggs are next added (one at a time), followed by the vanilla. After that, alternate adding the milk mixture, the spiced rum, and the flour mixture. After everything has been incorporated, fold the walnuts into the batter.
  4. Fill the bundt pan with your cake batter. For about an hour in the oven, bake the cake until the exterior is golden and the middle is set. Before transferring your rum cake to a platter, let it cool completely in the pan.
  5. Butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar are combined in a small pot and heated until smooth. Add the cream and rum next, then bring to a boil while continuously stirring. Finally, turn off the heat and let the sauce cool completely before serving.
  6. Slices of warm rum cake should be served with a generous drizzle of buttery rum sauce and a garnish of chopped walnuts.
