due to overwhelming demand

okay only Jenni was looking for it but here is the famous rum cake recipe-as with most stuff on this blog it is incredibly easy!!!

1 box yellow cake mix
1box vanilla pudding I prefer french vanilla
1/3 cup rum and more
3 eggs
1/2 milk
1/4 cup oil
grease bundt pan preheat oven to 325
mix everything(handheld mixer maybe a minute or two) I usually add a splash or two more of rum just because the mix will be fairly dense Put in pan and bake for about 50 minutes
let cool in pan about hour then move to a rack. Once completely cool poke some holes into the cake and pour a bit of rum over the top of the cake then just let it sit we prefer overnight. Then we add the icing which is
1/4 cup butter
1/8 cup of water
1/2 cup of white sugar
boil then add 1/4 cup rum
pour this over the cake
and voila rum cake easy and you can use generic mixes even cheapo rum so it is not an expensive treat.
