- A bundt cake pan
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 box instant french vanilla pudding
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 c water
- 1/2 c oil
- 1/2 c rum
- 1/2 c chopped pecans (optional, I don't use 'em)
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 c sugar
- 1/4 c water
- 1/4 c rum
- Some kind of icing or powdered sugar
Mix the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, 1/2 water, 1/c rum, and oil.
Put pecans in the bottom of a pam sprayed bundt cake pan.
Pour mix into pan.
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes. The cake should start to pull away from the pan. (That's what the recipe says, I've never had to go longer than 45)
Let the cake cool for 20-30 minutes.
Poke a ton of holes in the cake with a wooden skewer or something similar.
Mix the 1/4 c water, butter, sugar, and 1/4 cup rum in a pot. This is a great time to pour a little heavily on the rum.
Heat and boil for 5 minutes. Try not to overcook it though or it'll get taffy-like after it cools.
Pour that awesomeness over the cake.
Let the cake sit for 1 hour. It's hard to wait, I know, because right now it'll smell AWESOME. But so worth it.
Turn the cake out of the pan! You may need to use a spatula or something to help it out.
Decorate it with the powdered sugar, or squirting frosting in big loops.
