Now here is a cake that will actually make you kiss your Granny. And Uncle Bob and Aunt Sue and cousin Leroy and your dogs and cats. This wonderful recipe comes my new found friend, Libby Murphy, who authors the food blog 'twirlandtaste'. http://www.twirlandtaste.com/2013/02/spiced-rum-cake-with-butter-rum-glaze.html. You'll for sure want to slip on over to this wonderful blog where every food item in it flips my trigger. Just trust me, you will not be disappointed. And please tell her that Adele sent you.
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 (3 1/2 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup water
4 big eggs
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted and soaked in more spiced rum
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1/3 cup spiced rum
1/4 cup water
In small saucepan, bring the sugar, butter and water to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Add rum. With a fork, make holes in the top of the cake. Drizzle over cooled cake. Let glaze drip down the sides of the cake. Allow glaze to cool and then add more of the cooled glaze which will be a little thicker.
NOTE: I took this to my girlfriend Bev yesterday for her birthday which is actually today. She loves rum so I just knew that this would be the perfect cake for her. We all had a slice and my husband replied that it was richer than Stuart Dickson who is my boss man. I agreed! So if you know anyone that this cake would mean anything to you just might want to make one yourself and share the love....
