    Default Food with alcohol in it

    Do you eat it? Like wine sauce or a cake with rum in it, or beer bread, what do you do? Eat it or not? I'm just wondering what everyone else does when faced with this.

    I don't think that I would even think twice about. The alcohol is often gone after a food item is cooked and I don't think that I have ever had rum cake (which has the alcohol added after it is cooked).

    I cook with alcohol all the time. The only time I dont eat it is if its not cooked. If it is cooked all the alcohol is cooked out leaving only the flavor. Its not a big deal at all.

    I would eat it, even if it isn't cooked. The amount of rum in a rum cake is like 2oz, spread over 8+servings you are getting less than a dose of cough syrup. And even if it isn't cooked, it does evaporate.

    I agree. Cooking burns off the alcohol content. If you feel more comfortable avoiding it, no worries if you play "better safe than sorry" right? I wouldn't hesitate to enjoy it though... especially beer bread - yum!

    I haven't stayed away from it in other pregnancies, and don't really plan to in this one. I was just wondering if I was in the minority or majority

    I still cooked with it when I was pregnant and never thought twice about it.
