Rum Cake

I think this is the only reason my parents ever had alcohol in the house. Mom originally would make this in a Bundt pan, but lately has been making cupcakes and tiny loafs because she likes the crispy edges. Just reduce the time a little. Cake 1 Duncan Hines Supreme yellow cake mix 1 large package instant vanilla pudding 4 eggs 1/2 cup wesson oil 1/2 cup cold water 1/2 cup Bacardi light rum 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Grease and flour an angel food cake or Bundt cake pan. Sprinkle chopped pecans in bottom of pan. Mix all other ingredients and pour over nuts.

Bake @ 325 degrees for 1 hour. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan. While still warm, prick top with fork and pour glaze over cake.

Glaze 1 stick butter 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup rum

Mix and boil butter, sugar and water. Add rum. Allow glaze to cool approximately 5 minutes.
