the best rum cake i ever had! begged my colleague MT to send me her famed recipe (: tried it out at AN’s place. it is as easy as MT claims but… didn’t taste as good, that’s always the case isn’t it? (: note that the glazing part is a bit tricky but apart from that, everything else was smooth sailing

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 (18.5 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup dark rum

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/8 cup water
1/4 cup dark rum

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan. Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly over the bottom of the pan.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix. Mix in the eggs, water, oil and rum. Blend well. Pour batter over chopped nuts in the pan.

Bake in the oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Let sit for 10 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto serving plate.

To make the glaze:
In a saucepan, combine butter, water and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat and continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in rum. An easy way to glaze your cake is to pour half of the glaze into the Bundt pan, reinsert cake, then pour the rest of the glaze over the bottom of the cake. Let absorb well then invert back onto platter.
