what you need
  • Cake:
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 eggs, large
  • 1/2 cup Bacardi Amber Rum (or white rum is fine)
  • 1/2 cup water, cold
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup walnut or pecan pieces
  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 lb. butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup Bacardi Amber Rum (white is fine)
make it
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Pour all ingredients (except nuts) into a large mixing bowl. Mix for 2 minutes at medium speed of an hand held mixer. Scrape bowl with spatula to incorporate dry ingredients. Mix at medium speed for 3 additional minutes.

Spray a bundt pan with Pam (or the like) and sprinkle with flour. Pour the walnut/pecan pieces evenly on the bottom of the pan. Pour the cake mixture on top of the nuts.

Bake for one hour. When cooked, let cool in pan for 15 minutes before transferring to a cake rack. Place the cake rack over a cookie sheet to glaze. Glaze and transfer carefully to a serving platter.

Prepare glaze by melting the butter (do not allow to brown). Stir in water and sugar and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the rum.

Place the cake rack over a piece of waxed paper. Poke small holes in the cake and pour the glaze over the holes in top and allow the glaze to sink in and/or drizzle down the sides of the cake.
This cake is wonderful with or without the glaze. As the rum is not fully cooked out of the glaze I personally find it to be very strong. The cake freezes very very well in baggies for quick snacks.
