2nd Step- Add the sugar and cook until the sauce is smooth when the butter has melted. Remove from heat and add rum. Taste the caramel and add more rum if you want a stronger flavor. 

3rd Step- Stream caramel over the bottom of the prepared pan and set aside.

4th Step- Whisk together the flour, baking powder, ginger, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. In a medium bowl, beat with an electric mixer until light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add sugar and beat until light and smooth, about 5 minutes.

6th Step- Add half of the flour mixture and mix well. Add the yogurt, then the remaining flour mixture, and whisk until fully incorporated.
