Christmas Rum Cake


Thank you Miz Helen of Full Plate Thursday for the feature of my Caramel Chocolate Oat Squares. Since I started blogging years ago, your place is one of my favorites.

This cake is perfect for Christmas but I suggest make another cake for children cause this one has rum content.It looks awesome and seeing it on the table got me so excited. I ate 2 slices and I got really drowsy...was wondering how I went to bed the next morning... ha ha ha! My son enjoyed it although he told me got a little headache after. Well, my daughter wont tell me the truth but I knew it..she also disliked the rum taste. But for adults like me, this cake is really great. 

 Ingredients
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 package INSTANT Vanilla Pudding Mix
4 whole Eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup canola Oil
1/2 cup dark Rum 
1 cup chopped pecans
Brown Sugar (optional)

GLAZE
1 1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cup  brown sugar
3/4 cup Rum

Preheat oven to 325 F.
Grease and flour a bundt cake pan. Sprinkle nuts over bottom of pan. If desired, sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar over the nuts.
Mix all cake ingredients together. Pour batter into pan over nuts. Smooth out ’til the top is even. Bake for 1 hour, or a little less if the pan is black. Do not overbake!

Glaze:
While cake has ten minutes to go, make the glaze. Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in water and sugar. Boil for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Turn off flame and pour in rum. Stir to combine and reheat for 30 seconds.

Remove cake from oven. Immediately drizzle 1/3 of the glaze on the bottom (top) of the cake. Allow to sit for five minutes. Invert the cake onto a serving plate. Prick surface a hundred times with a fork (gently, please.) Slowly drizzle remaining rum glaze all over the top of the cake, allowing it to drip down the sides. Cool to room temperature before serving to ensure glaze has soaked in. Eat. Enjoy. And don’t feel guilty. It’s Christmastime!

Where's The Party?

  1. This sounds good for grown ups. I guess if you make it again you could leave out the rum. Thanks for sharing at Cooking and Crafting with J & J.
