How to Make Rum Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake


  • 1Allow butter, eggs, and egg yolk to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    Meanwhile, generously grease and lightly flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside.
    In a small bowl stir together flour and baking powder.
    In a medium bowl combine milk and rum.
    Using the tip of a small sharp knife, scrape out seeds from vanilla beans.
