Best Rum Cake Recipe: The Easiest, Moistest & Tastiest Cake Mix Rum Cake Recipe Ever

Needing another dessert for Christmas, my friend shared her easy rum cake recipe with me. Thank you, friend! This is the easiest cake to prepare, smells heavenly and is moist and full of vanilla, butter and rum flavor. 

This delicious rum cake dessert recipe will be a new family tradition, for the holidays and beyond.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 to 60 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour (approximately) 
Servings: Makes 1 cake

Ingredients

Cake 

Glaze

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white rum or spiced rum 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. With an electric mixer, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, water and rum. Beat well.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan (one that holds at least 10 cups). Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for about 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  3. While the cake bakes, combine the butter, sugar and water in a saucepot. Bring to a boil, stirring, until everything is melted together and combined. Turn off the heat and stir in the rum.
  4. When the cake comes out of the oven, pour the glaze over it while it is still in the pan (my friend likes to poke holes in it first).
  5. Let the cake cool, then unmold onto a serving platter.

What size Bundt pan do you use? They come in many sizes.

One that holds at least 10 cups. I use my standard size bundt pan for a regular-size cake.
