1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 C water
1/2 C cooking oil
1/2 C butter (softened)
1/2 C dark rum (Myers's works well)
Combine cake and pudding mixes. Add eggs, water, butter, oil, and rum. Pour into a greased bundt pan. Bake at 350F for 1 hour. Let cool.
1/4 C water
1 C sugar (I like raw sugar for this)
1/2 C dark rum
Crushed walnuts (optional)
Boil water and sugar for 5 min. Stir in rum. Glaze top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired.
So, how did it go? Well, it wasn't pretty in my rectangle pan, but it sure tasted good!
It was so good, in fact, that I decided I needed a bundt pan as part of my onboard cookware! The next time it came out yummy AND pretty!
