"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

There's no finer complement to a well-made coffee or tea than a
freshly baked treat. We've rounded up some of our favourites from
bakeries and cafés around the country for an indulgent addition to
your well-deserved downtime.
Lune Croissanterie's croissant
A croissant capable of coaxing Melburnians from slumber at 6am on a Sunday may sound improbable. But as Lune devotees will attest, just one bite of this masterfully buttery and flaky pastry makes all the effort of early rising - and queuing - worth it.
Lune Croissanterie, 119 Rose St, Fitzroy, Vic
Edition Coffee Roasters' scroll
A sweet treat to equal the quality of the coffee is no easy task when the java is this good, but Edition has won our affection with its scrolls as well. Settle in with a batch brew and a delicate cinnamon-dusted yeasty scroll for a balanced start to the day. Get in early though - these guys move quickly.
Edition Coffee Roasters, 265 Liverpool St, Darlinghurst, NSW

There's no shortage of choice at this Tassie bakery thanks to the talents of husband and wife duo Alistair and Teena Wise. If you're struggling to commit, their raspberry jam-filled doughnut is our favourite solution to indecision.
