    I see we have a shortage of dessert recipes...so being the recipe junkie that I am (stop me if I get crazy!) I had to submit this one for your tasting. No matter where I bring this cake, people fight over the last piece and beg for the recipe. It really is That Good!!!
    I might mention that I made this cake for a fundraising auction and it went for $225.00!!!!!

    Best Rum Cake

    Cake:
    1 cup chopped, toasted pecans or walnuts
    1 18-1/2 ounce yellow cake mix
    1 3.4 ounce instant vanilla pudding mix
    4 eggs
    1/2 cup cold milk
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 cup Barcardi dark rum (I use regular Bacardi and Gold with no problems)
    Glaze:
    1 stick butter
    1/4 cup water
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup Barcardi dark rum
    Cake: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour 12-cup Bundt pan. Sprinkle nuts on bottom of pan. Combine all cake ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes on high with electric mixer. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour (or until knife comes out clean). Cool in pan. Poke holes into cake(while still in pan) with a skewer and pour glaze over , let sit for an hour or so then invert onto a serving plate
    Glaze: Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in water and sugar.
    Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in rum. Note: The rum will cause steam. Be careful not to burn yourself.

    Bass,
    Just use your mouse to high-lite the whole text you want to copy. Then right click copy. . With that done..open a word doc, get your cursor on the page and right click and choose paste . save the doc to your files:) Hope you got that...PM me if you need more direction.

    Pudding mix, the box I have is 3.4oz size.

    The recipe says "1 3/4oz" - is this correct ? Should I reduce the amount I use to 1 3/4 oz ?

    I've already made the cake portion. Waiting for it cool to glaze it !

    I found this recipe on the internet in several places. One said to use the 3.4oz package (4 serving size).

    Thanks ! I look forward to eating it later.
