Ingredients

1/2 c
pecans, in pieces
18 1/4 oz
yellow cake mix
3 3/4 oz
instant vanilla jello pudding and pie filling
1/2 c
vegetable oil
1/2 c
water
4
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 c
dark rum

FOR THE RUM GLAZE

2 Tbsp
butter melted
2 c
confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp
dark rum or 2 teaspoons rum extract
1-2 Tbsp
half and half or milk
1 c
pecan halves for garnish

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 325.
2Spray a bundt pan well with nonstick spray for baking. Sprinkle the chopped nuts in the bottom of the pan.
3Mix the cake mix, pudding mix, oil, water, eggs, vanilla extract and rum until well mixed about 2 minutes.
4Pour over the pecans in the bundt pan. Bake at 325 for 40-60 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 30 minutes before removing from pan.
5For the glaze melt butter in a saucepan combine with confectioners sugar and rum or rum extract.
6Mix until smooth adding 1/2 tablespoon milk at a time until it's thin enough to pour over cake but not to thin.
7You will probably need more of the milk if you use the rum extract instead of the actual rum since you use less.
8Pour the glaze over the cake letting it run down and over the sides. If your glaze is thick enough your glaze won't run a whole lot. Dot the top and down the sides a little with the pecan halves.
