This is one of those "family secrets" recipies that everyone in the family knows about, and pretty much doesn't share. But it's so good, that I decided to make an exception.

Ingredients

FOR CAKE

1 box
cake mix, yellow (anything that goes with rum)
1 box
vanilla pudding mix, small (or flavor corresponding to cake)
4
eggs
1/2 c
oil
1/2 c
water
1/2 c
rum (dark is better, imo)

FOR GLAZE

1/4 c
rum
1 c
powdered sugar
3 Tbsp
butter (can use up to one whole square, but this amount will give you a crunchy glaze)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add the cake mix, small box of pudding, eggs, oil, water, and rum to a medium mixing bowl.
My personal favorite is a pineapple cake mix (or add pineapple flavoring to a yellow cake mix).
2
Using hand mixer, blend until smooth (approximately 2-3 minutes.
3
Pour mix into well-greased and floured bundt pan (Pam for Baking is perfect for this)
4
Bake 50-60 minutes.
Let it sit for 5-10 minutes in the pan before turning it out of the pan onto a rack.
5
Prepare and cook the glaze. By the time it is done, the cake will be cool enough (warm, but not hot) to put it on.
6
Glaze Preparation:
Put rum, butter, and powdered sugar into small/med saucepan.
7
Stirring constantly, cook over low/med head until boiling. Let boil 5 minutes.
8
Put cake on plate. Pour glaze over the cake (or use a pastry brush to get it into every nook & cranny).
9
Let cool so glaze hardens. Eat warm or cooled--tasty either way!
