Bacardi Rum Cake
1 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts
1 yellow cake mix
1 regular size of vanilla instant pudding mix
½ cup of water
½ cup of cooking oil
½ cup of Rum
Mix all well with mixer (about 3 minutes)
Grease and flour a tube pan or a Bundt pan or a long pan. I did a long pan and it turned out fine.
After you have greased and floured it sprinkle
1 cup of finely chopped pecans or walnuts over the bottom pour batter over this.
Cook until done, about 40 minutes for the long pan about an hour for the Bundt or tube pan.
Cook at 300 degrees.
Turn out when done.
To make a wonderful glaze put
1 cup of sugar
¼ cup of water
1 stick of butter or margarine,
Boil over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring all the time.
Take off and put
½ cup of rum and stir and then poke holes over the top of the cake and drizzle it over!!
Wow!! Good Cake!!!
Would be wonderful served with real whipped cream. Any thing is wonderful with whipped cream.
Jack got me my Rum about 20 years ago in an airport in Norway. He had some extra Norwegian money and he said, “you are always wanting to make a rum cake, do you want some rum” I said sure!!
It sat for 20 years in my pantry. I told Jack Never say never!!
