The recipe for this Nova Scotia specialty was concocted in the 1920s as a way to smuggle booze past the authorities during the Prohibition era. The moist confection comes in several flavors, such as chocolate and mango, and is drenched in rum from a Cape Breton distillery. The original cake is topped with coconut and pecans.
