Italian Rum Cake

Ohhhhh hadn’t had or made one of these in Years …hubby saw one in a Magazine so I dug out grandmas ol’ recipe book and surprised him!

For the Cake..You will Need:
1 box of yellow cake mix
and if it doesn’t have pudding in the mix.. you will need 1 package of vanilla instant pudding
4 Eggs
1/2 cup of oil
1 cup of walnuts
1/2 cup of dark rum

Glaze Ingredients
1 stick of butter
1 cup of sugar (not powdered)
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of dark rum

What you do:
Heat your oven to 325
Grease the bundt pan
Pour 1 cup of chopped nuts in the pan.. spread evenly
Mix all your cake ingredients.. blend well and pour batter over nuts
Bake for 45 to 50 min… do the toothpick test to check the outside will get a bit darker and that is what you want

To make your glaze melt the butter in a sauce pan .. stir in the water and sugar
Boil the mix for 5 min. stirring constantly
Add the rum AFTER the mix is off the stove

When the cake has cooled.. invert it to a serving plate… prick the top .. I use a toothpick or fork
Drizzle and smooth the glaze over
allow the cake to absorb as much glaze as possible.. there will be a puddle around the bottom of the cake… cover it tightly and let sit overnight.. will absorb it up!
