So break out your bundt pan, because we’re delving into how to make the best rum cake ever.
For The Cake:
– 1 box (15.25 oz) yellow cake mix
– 1 package (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix
– 4 large eggs
– 1/2 cup cold water
– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
– 1/2 cup dark rum
For The Glaze:
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter
– 1/4 cup water
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup dark rum
1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease and lightly flour a bundt pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, instant vanilla pudding mix, eggs, cold water, vegetable oil, and dark rum. Use an electric mixer to beat the batter for about two minutes on medium speed or until completely smooth.
3. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared bundt pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
4. Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for approximately 15 minutes before inverting it onto a serving plate.
5. While the cake is cooling in the pan, prepare the glaze by melting butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add water and granulated sugar to the pot and bring to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves. Remove the pan from heat and carefully stir in the dark rum.
6. Once the cake is properly cooled and on a serving plate, use a toothpick or skewer to pierce holes all over it, ensuring they go deep enough to allow the glaze to penetrate.
7. Slowly drizzle the warm glaze over the cake, letting it soak in before adding more. You may need to pour some of the glaze that has pooled at the base of the cake back onto it to fully saturate it with flavor.
8. Allow your rum cake to rest for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight) before serving so that the flavors meld together and intensify.
Serve this amazing rum cake at your next gathering, or enjoy it as a delicious indulgence all on your own. Either way, you’re sure to receive rave reviews.
