Rum Cake

Along with the PB bon bons I also made two rum cakes yesterday.  It just wouldn't be Christmas without this treat!

I would recommend using a metal pan because this one soaked up some of the glaze!

Rum Cake


    * 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    * 1 (18 oz) package of Butter Recipe Golden cake mix
    * 1 (3/4 oz) vanilla pudding mix
    * 1/2 cup water
    * 1/2 cup oil
    * 1/2 cup light rum (or more if you are like me!)
    * 4 eggs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour bundt pan and sprinkle the nuts on the bottom. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix for two minutes. Pour in pan and bake at 325 degrees for one hour. With a few minutes of baking left begin making the glaze.

Hot Rum Glaze

    * 1 cup of sugar
    * 1 stick of butter
    * 1/4 cup of rum
    * 1/4 cup of water

Put all ingredients in sauce pan and boil for 3 minutes. Pour glaze over cake while cake is still hot and in the pan. Let set for 30 minutes before dumping cake onto a festive plate. Enjoy!
