This cake was really big in the 1970'sand is another recipe from the recipe booklet from Bacardi .It is a great cake for the Holiday's.I all way's use to put a place card next to it to let folk's know that it does have real rum in it, not extract.Another cake that can be made a day or so ahead.My friend use this recipe for rum cake in her resturant,and could not keep then in stock. I had trouble finding Bacardi dark rum so I bought Myer Rum - dark . It's just as good I just want to put this on in case you're having trouble finding the original.

How to Make Bacardi Famous Rum Cake


  1. Preaheat oven to 325 degrees.Grease and flour 10"tube or 12 cup Bundt pan .(I use bakers joy spray)Sprinkle nut over bottom of pan.Mix cake ingredients together .Pour batter over nuts .Bake 1 hour .Cool and invert on serving plate.Prick Top of Cake.Drizzle and smooth glaze over top and side of cake.Allow cake to absorb glaze.Repeate till glaze is used up.
  2. For Glaze . Melt butter in saucepan .Stir in water and sugar.Boil 5 minutes,stirring constantly.REMOVE FROM HEAT .Stir in Rum.
  3. Personal Note:::If using cake mix with pudding already in the mix omit instant pudding use only 3 eggs and only 1/3 cup of oil....I use cake mix with out the pudding if at all possible.I like the looks the Tube Pan gives the cake ,but have use a bunt ,both work
