August 6, 2009

1 Dunkin Hines Golden Butter Cake mix

1 small package instant vanilla pudding

½ c. oil

½ c. rum, preferable dark

½ c. water

4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients together.  Beat well (4-5 minutes).  Use well-greased and lightly floured  Bundt pan. Sprinkle with 1 c. chopped pecans and pour in batter.  Bake at 350 degrees 50-60 minutes. Test for doneness in center. Remove from oven and punch cake with holes and release cake from pan sides with rubber spatula.  Pour glaze over while cake is still warm.  Allow cake to cool in pan before inverting onto serving plate with a lip.

GLAZE:            1 c. sugar

4 T. butter

3 T. water

Heat 5 minutes, stirring constantly, but do not boil.  Remove from heat and stir in ½ c. dark rum.  Mix well.  Cool glaze a bit.  While glaze is just “warm” pour over hot cake in pan.
