Yummy Rum Cake

16 Jun

While on our honeymoon on Grand Cayman Island Dustin and I ate a lot of their yummy rum cake.  I have been craving it lately for some reason so I decided to try making it.  We found this recipe online, and I have to say, its tastes a lot like it.  It is delicious!!! You have to try it!

Cayman Island Rum Cake

1 cup chopped walnuts
1 box yellow cake mix
1 small package instant vanilla pudding mix
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup dark rum (Tortuga Dark preferably)
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs

Secret Sauce
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup dark rum
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter


Preheat oven at 325 F.
Grease and flour a bundt pan
Sprinkle walnuts over the bottom of the pan.
Blend dry cake mix, dry pudding mix, water, rum, oil and eggs for 2 minutes. Pour over walnuts in pan. Bake for 1 hour.

Prepare Secret sauce 10 minutes before cake is finished baking.
Combine rum, water, sugar and butter in to sauce pan. Heat over medium heat, stirring until boiling. Boil for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove cake from oven.
While in pan, gently stab cake with sharp knife.
Slowly pour sauce over cake (will look like too much sauce, but cake will absorb it)
Let the cake cool in the pan for 30 minutes before removing from pan.
