Take a bundt pan and grease and flour. Sprinkly pecans all over bottom evenly. Mix the rest of the cake ingredients in a bowl. Pour over top of pecans. Bake @ 325 for 50 min.

    this glaze sounds delish Cynthia. I just made a tropical fruit cake and was looking for a good glaze to put on top and this one sounds like it will be perfect for it. thanks for sharing.

    You are welcome. It is delishious. Just remember to let the cake sit for a couple of days if you add the rum, it is much better that way.

    I have this same recipe, but I put all 4 ingredients in & boil 2 minutes for the glaze. I use a butter knife to poke holes in the cake while it's still in the pan and let set for 30 minutes. That way ALL of the glaze goes into the cake! Makes it VERY moist, lol!! Depending on who it's for, the amount of rum is "adjustable;" some like it strong!
