Rum Cake

"Christmas in Vienna" Star Sarah Drew Makes Rum Cake - Home & Family


  • 1 box butter cake mix (Duncan Hines moist deluxe butter cake or yellow cake is best)
  • 1 small package of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs (room temp)


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup light rum


  1. Preheat oven to 325˚F.
  2. Grease and lightly flour a Bundt pan
  3. In a large bowl combine cake and pudding mix add rum, oil, water and eggs
  4. Beat well until smooth
  5. Bake 55-60 min at 325˚F.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately make glaze.


*Do not prepare in advance. Boil after cake is done*

  1. Boil all ingredients together until it’s syrupy, just until the sugar dissolves. As soon as it’s boiling, it’s time to pour it over the cake!
  2. Use a knife to peel the cake away from the sides of the pan, and to give room for the glaze to drip down.
  3. Pour the boiled glaze over the cake while both are still hot
  4. Let the cake cool for 30-40 min in the pan, then turn over onto a plate or cooling rack.
  5. It’s best to eat this cake cold, so it’s good to refrigerate after it’s finished.
