This delightful orange and rum flavoured cake is one that will melt in your mouth. The butter used in this recipe is relatively low in fat and carbohydrates and so is suitable for a diabetic diet. You can skip the rum if you wish and simply add 2 tablespoons of fat free milk or water instead.
However remember that moderation is the key here and it is wise to restrict these treats to occasional indulgences.
