I used to make pounds of the batter during the winter months just to have on hand. If you make a bunch, it’s easy to roll into a log and then just slice off pieces as you need…

  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt

Mix all ingredients well and place in refrigerator until ready to use.

To make a cuppa:

Place a heaping tablespoon of batter in a mug. Add rum, and then add almost-boiling water. Stir.
