Yum Rum Cake…

As you know, we recently came back from a Cruise. It was wonderful – everything about it was perfect, and we had no complaints. None at all. What we did have was tons of compliments, and many favorite things. One of the best things we had while cruising was the Rum Cake. Eating the small one I brought home as a souvenir, I was wishing we could duplicate it. So this was mentioned to my nephew Dan who was on the cruise, and is currently involved in a Culinary Program in school. He made this cake for Sunday’s Pay Per View party, and to say it was delicious is an understatement. It tasted wonderful, and it was an exact copy of what we had in the Caribbean.
The recipe he used is as follows –
C A K E
Four whole eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup Gold Rum (Bacardi)
1 box of Yellow Cake Mix
G L A Z E
1/2 cup Gold Rum (Bacardi)
1 small box of sugar free vanilla pudding
G L A Z E
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 stick butter
1/2 cup Gold Rum (Bacardi)
Dan’s variation – for one of the glaze rums, he used Amaretto. Mmm.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix cake ingredients and pour into a greased and floured bundt pan. Cook until done, about 60 minutes. Remove cake from pan. Mix the first glaze and drizzle on top. For the next glaze, combine butter, water and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce and continue heating for five minutes. Remove from heat, stir in rum. Get ready to enjoy!
