Holiday Rum Cake

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509





18 oz commercial yellow cake mix

1 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix

1/2 water

1/2 cup light color rum

1/2 cup vegetable oil

4 eggs

1 cup roughly chopped pecans



1 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup light rum

1 stick butter

Blend dry cake mix, dry pudding, mix, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup rum, oil and eggs for 2 minutes.

Spray a bundt pan with a non-stick cooking spray.

Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for an hour.

Prepare hot sauce just before the cake is finished baking.

In a heaving frying pay (cast iron if you have it) heat 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup rum, and butter. While stirring, boil mixture for 2-3 minutes.

Remove cake from oven and let sit for 3-5 minutes.

While in pan, slowly pour hot sauce over cake and let the cake cook in the pan for 30-40 minutes before flipping onto cake plate. Take a sharp knife and make several places in the cake so the hot sauce goes all over.

After cake is totally cooled, wrap in foil real well and store in cool, dry place for at least  a few days before cutting. After cutting you can store it in the refrigerator.

As an alternative, use amaretto instead of rum and chocolate chips instead of pecans then add almond slivers to sprinkle on top.

My paternal grandmother used to make baba rum.  I used to help her make it as a child, and then she would soak it in rum.  After that we would serve it topped with whipped cream...The cake was moist and delicious... A

Hi Patricia,

My dad made rum cakes and liked to deliver them to all his friends and many people at his church. He probably made 5+ cakes a week and on holidays even more. He had one modification in his recipe as he heated the butter and poured the rum in for 10 seconds to stir it around and then he poured it on the cake. He did not burn the alcohol out of the sauce. I used to go to church with him and the ladies would come up and say "Ben, your cakes are so good that I sometimes feel light-headed and happy' as they laughed and flirted with him. I knew it was because they were light headed from eating the rum cake laced with rum. I would always say "Don't eat rum cake and drive so let your friend drive instead". They just laughed and laughed. My dad was a character and he is probably still making those rum cakes in Heaven.
