  2. Stefanieon 26 Jan 2009 at 6:13 pm

    My question exactly? What is 7-up dough?

  3. Sherrieon 18 Mar 2009 at 11:00 am

    I am Jamaican…and besides the Appleton Rum…there is NOTHING Jamaican about this recipe. Please don’t try to carry down our name by trying to imitate us!!!!! There is nothing called 7-up dough recipe in the Jamaican cuisine

  4. Rastafarieon 16 Apr 2009 at 3:01 pm

    Even though it sounds tropical and shit, she’s right… Don’t add Rastafarian or Jamaican and expect people to not be pissed.

  7. Micahon 30 Jul 2009 at 6:02 pm

    I am Jamaican and this recipe along with most that I have seen on the web is horribly wrong…but, at least you’ve got the rum right, but we put a lot more than just 3tbs…sorry…try again…

  8. kerenon 03 Aug 2009 at 2:00 pm

    i thoughts exactly Sherri- where on earth did they get this recipe from?? You couldn’t have said it better. They need to remove this recipe from this site altogether and NEVER post it again!

    What is 7 cup dough recipe?? There is no such thing. This has nothing to do with Jamaican food. This is very confusing for people who are trying to cook Jamaican food.

  13. Ann-Marieon 11 May 2010 at 4:20 am

    Ah bway!!! I’m glad so many people have already made it clear that this is NOT a jamaican recipe. A better description would be Appleton Rum cake or something similar but it is not something we bake. It is however similar to Cayman’s Tortuga Rum cake which in it’s original form (they have different flavours now) is a yellow light cake with lots of Tortuga Rum. I don’t know if any other caribbean island does a similar cake but we don’t.

    The nearest to a rum cake that we have is our fruit cake (a lot more work) which is baked mostly at Christmas and for weddings and as Micah said it uses a lot more rum:)

    The biggest mistake people make is to assume that being declared bankruptcy is the last nail in their financial coffin. In fact, it is still possible to secure a variety of loans even before the 2-year term such rulings affect a credit status even ends. When seeking a car loan after bankruptcy, it is good to know there are options.Of course, the available terms are not perfect – but what can be expected after being declared bankrupt? The key factor for those who qualify is that they can get approval despite bankruptcy being on a credit record for up to 10 years. :

    They typically give you 80% of the check amount in cash,

    check credit ratings, they’re going to loan for your requirements so long as there is really a stable job involved.
