it wouldn't be a pak christmas without this favorite...
i got it from my mom many moons ago...
preheat oven to 325
1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 pkg (3 3/4 oz) vanilla instant pudding
1/2 c cold water
1/2 c dark rum (i use mount gay)
1/2 c vegetable oil
mix cake mix, pudding eggs water rum and oil until smooth in mixer.
pour in to bunt pan sprayed with cooking oil
bake for one hour
cool 25 minutes and remove from pan... invert from pan and poke holes in top with chopstick. spoon and brush glaze over cake. I find it useful to place the cake on a cooling rack over a plate so the extra glaze will drip off and not make the cake to soggy.
1/4 lb butter
1/4 c water
1 c sugar
1/2 c dark rum (again i use mount gay)
melt butter in sauce pan. sir in water and sugar. boil 5 minutes, remove from heat and add rum... use immediately.
