Yummy Butterscotch Rum Cake

JoSele Swopes


This is a melt in yer mouth cake. This recipe is a no brainer, it was given to my mom from a very good friend years ago. It still works, I made it for work this past year and it went over great. Had people wanting me to make one for them to take home.

How to Make Yummy Butterscotch Rum Cake


  1. Pre-Heat oven 325* Lightly grease and flour Bundt Pan
  2. In mixing bowl mix Cake Mix, Butterscotch Pudding Mix, Eggs, Cooking oil, Cold Water, 1/2 Cup Rum, blend till light and fluffy
  3. Sprinkle chopped Walnuts in to bottom of pan, now pour batter around equally into pan. Bake for 1 hour
    Let cool approx 5 minutes then turn on to platter and tap bottom of pan all around to release...
  4. Prepare Glaze: In sauce pan, melt Butter, add water, add sugar. Bring to boil and boil 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add Rum. Note: I cooked the glaze a little longer and it added a beautiful sheen to the cake...
  5. Poke holes into top of cake, I use toothpicks, then spoon glaze over cake. It will not be real thick, will be slightly runny. Cover and put in cool place. Let set then go back in a few hours and spoon more glaze onto it. The more it is soaked with the glaze the better it is......
