Easy Rum Cake

And here is another one.  I admit that I haven't tried it, but I have all the ingredients, and it seems so easy I thought I'd share it here.  How can one go wrong?  I plan on making it tonight, so I'll comment about how it turns out.

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding (4 serving size)
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. rum (light)
4 eggs

What to Do
Grease tube pan. Mix first five ingredients with mixer. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees F.  Leave in pan until sauce is added and all is cooled completely.

Sauce Ingredients
1/2 stick butter
1/8 c. water
1/2 c. sugar
1/8-1/4 c. rum

What to Do
Bring butter, water, sugar and rum to a boil. Pour over cake when done and still hot. Remove cake from pan when completely cool.  Top each serving with whipped cream.

  1. This recipe was wonderful. It did not taste at all like it was made from a mix. Trinity was over and had two peices the day I made it...which she ate in about three minutes. The next day we ate some with a berry mixture and whipped cream on top and she asked for two peices again and then she said, "Grandma, Mommy makes the best cookies [I woudl agree] but YOU makes the best cakes." So, there you have it. I will make this again...if someone gives me some rum.
