How to Make Mini Rum Cakes


  • 1Preheat oven to 325.
  • 2Mix together cake mix, pudding mix, rum, oil and eggs. Pour batter into prepared tins. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes.
  • 3To make the glaze: Combine the sugar, butter and rum in a saucepan.
  • 4Heat and boil for 3 minutes. Set aside the glaze until the cakes is ready.
  • 5When cakes are finished baking, allow to cool several minutes, then remove from tins.
  • 6Transfer cakes into a wide dish with edges (such as a casserole dish).
  • 7While the cakes are hot, poke holes in the top with a toothpick, then spoon the glaze over them slowly.
  • 8(I like to do half of the glaze, wait a minute, then add the rest).
  • 9After several hours, the cakes will absorb all of the glaze (you can flip them over after about 1 hour, so that they absorb the glaze more evenly).
  • 10Notes: I used some of the batter to make a 8 inch round cake to.
  • 11I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top to give it something extra. This took about 28 minutes to bake.
