Rum Cake-The Best

This is one of my very favourite cakes to make. The flavour is wonderful.


  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 pkg yellow cake mix (18 1/2 oz. size)
  • 1 pkg Jello Vanilla instant pudding/pie filling
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup amber rum

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sprinkle the nuts over the bottom of the pan.

Mix all ingredients together. Pour batter over the nuts and bake for 1 hour.

Cool and invert on a serving plate. Prick the top with a fork and drizzle the smooth glaze all over the top.  Allow the glaze to be soaked in and repeat until all the glaze is gone.


  • 1/2 lb. butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup amber rum

Melt butter in a saucepan.Whisk in the water and sugar. Boil for 5 minutes, constantly stirring. Remove from heat. Stir in the rum.

Serve with great flair and add a dollop of whipped cream…..just ‘cuz.
