So I came home after a hectic day yesterday and made this Rum Cake for a Teachers' Luncheon at Joshua's Junior High. Mmmmmm, it made the whole house smell YUMMY! I put John in charge of delivery and he was wondering if they'd notice if there's a piece missing. He suggested slicing it in advance and spreading them out on the plate so he could have some. Such a cute compliment!
Here's our Rum Cake recipe:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box instand vanilla pudding mix
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup rum
1/2 cup water
Mix batter and pour into greased Bundt pan. Bake 50-55 minutes at 350. While your cake is in the oven, boil the following ingredients together for 2-3 minutes:
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup rum
1 cup sugar, scant
Poke the cake with a fork as it's cooling and pour the Butter-Rum sauce over the top.
Let cool a bit longer and invert onto a plate. Serve with fresh berries and whipped cream.
