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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325.
2
Spray a bundt pan well with nonstick spray for baking. Sprinkle the chopped nuts in the bottom of the pan.
3
Mix the cake mix, pudding mix, oil, water, eggs, vanilla extract and rum until well mixed about 2 minutes.
4
Pour 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.
5
For the glaze melt butter in a saucepan combine with confectioners sugar and rum or rum extract.
6
Mix until smooth adding 1/2 tablespoon milk at a time until it's thin enough to pour over cake but not to thin.
7
You will probably need more of the milk if you use the rum extract instead of the actual rum since you use less.
8
Pour 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.
