Today's Round Up: Dessert

My friend Staci is an amazing cook. The first time I tried her Rum Cake I just about fell over! This cake is extremely moist, ridiculously delicious, and will leave you wanting more and more and more. It is perfect for a dinner party, a birthday party, or just as an after dinner treat. You won't be sorry you tried this one!

Staci's Rum Cake

* 1 box yellow cake mix
* 1 box of Jello Instant Vanilla Pudding
* 4 eggs
* 1/2 Cup light rum
* 1/2 Cup water
* 1 Cup oil

Hot Rum Glaze
* 1/2 Cup water
* 1 stick butter
* 1/4 Cup rum
* 1 Cup sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, mix all ingredients for two minutes. Grease and flour bundt cake pan and pour batter into pan. Bake for 45 minutes.

Just before cake is done baking, prepare hot rum glaze. In sauce pan combine water, butter, rum and sugar. Stir often while heating. Boil for three minutes. As soon as cake is removed from oven (and while cake is still in pan), poke holes in cake and spoon some of the glaze over it. Let cake set for 30 minutes, remove from pan and spoon remaining glaze over top.
