How to Make Rum Cake
In a saucepan, combine butter, ¼ cup water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat and continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of rum.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 inch bundt pan (or mini pans). Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly over the bottom of pan.
- In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix. Mix in the eggs, ½ water,½ cup oil and ½ cup of rum. Blend well. Pour batter over chopped nuts in pan.
- Bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let sit for 10 minutes in pan, then turn out onto serving plate. If baking a large cake, gently poke small holes with a kabob spear (or small knife) into the cake.
- Brush glaze over the top and sides of cake. Allow cake to absorb glaze and repeat until all the glazed is used.
