Easy Rum Cake

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Serves: 12


For the Cake:
– 1 box yellow cake mix
– 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
– 4 large eggs
– 1/2 cup water
– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
– 1/2 cup dark rum
– 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

For the Glaze:
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter
– 1/4 cup water
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup dark rum


1. Prepare the Cake:
1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
2. If using, sprinkle the chopped nuts evenly in the bottom of the prepared bundt pan.
3. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, instant pudding mix, eggs, water, vegetable oil, and rum. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes, until the batter is smooth.
4. Pour the batter over the nuts in the bundt pan.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, invert the cake onto a serving plate.

2. Prepare the Glaze:
1. While the cake is baking, make the glaze. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, water, and granulated sugar.
2. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Let it boil for about 5 minutes, until the sugar is fully dissolved and the glaze is slightly thickened.
3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the rum.

3. Glaze the Cake:
1. While the cake is still warm, poke holes all over the top with a skewer or fork.
2. Slowly pour the rum glaze over the cake, allowing it to soak in. You may need to do this in stages, letting the glaze absorb before adding more.
3. Let the cake cool completely before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
