Simple Christmas Rum Cake

Recipe by  

"This makes a great inexpensive Christmas gift with a pretty presentation using any of the Christmas-themed fluted cake pans. The jellyroll pan with wax paper flip is the best idea I've been able to come up with for the transfer. Please share if you have better ideas!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt®) with cooking spray.
  2. Place the cake mix, eggs, 1/3 cup of rum, 1/2 cup of water, and the vegetable oil into a large bowl. Beat until smooth with an electric mixer on low speed, about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cake has risen and the top is lightly golden brown, about 40 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean.
  5. While cake is baking, make the glaze. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine 1/4 cup of rum, 1/4 cup of water, sugar, and butter. Stir and heat until all the sugar has dissolved and the butter is melted. Turn off heat.
  6. Remove the cake from the oven. While still hot and in the pan, poke the cake all over with a long skewer to make many deep holes.
  7. Pour the glaze over the hot cake. Allow the cake to cool until the cake separates slightly from the side of the pan, 10 to 12 minutes.
  8. Line a jellyroll pan or large baking sheet with waxed paper. Carefully place the lined pan over the top of the cake pan, and flip the cake pan over to release the cake onto the waxed paper. If desired, transfer cake to a serving platter.
  9. Let the cake cool thoroughly and sprinkle lightly with confectioners' sugar before slicing.

I did not care for this recipe.

BB, I had a Funfetti cake mix that I could NOT figure out what to do with, plus the pressure of needing a dessert for Christmas dinner? THANK YOU! This is perfect! I added a small box of vanilla pudding and for the glaze, I used 1 cup of Hot Buttered Rum batter along with the rum and Boy Oh Boy was this YUMMY! I have left over batter, so for dessert after dinner, guess what I'm gonna do?? I even ate a piece with my morning coffee of Course! LOL This cake could not be more simple but not simple tasting by any means. Terrific flavor! MERRY CHRISTMAS BB:)
