    Sounds like the old Bacardi rum cake. I love that one - it always seems like there's too much glaze, but it soaks up! Looks like everything is the same. It is a great cake, and gets better as it sits.

    1 CUP CHOPPED PECANS
    1 (18 OZ.) PACKAGE YELLOW CAKE MIX
    1 (3 OZ.) PACKAGE INSTANT VANILLA PUDDING
    4 EGGS
    CUP COLD WATER
    CUP VEGETABLE OIL
    CUP BACARDI RUM

    PREHEAT OVEN TO 325. GREASE AND FLOUR ANGEL FOOD OR 12 CUP BUNDT PAN. SPRINKLE NUTS INSIDE.

    MIX ALL INGREDIENTS AND POUR OVER NUTS.

    BAKE FOR 1 HOUR. COOL. INVERT ON SERVING PLATTER. DRIZZLE EVENLY WITH GLAZE. ALLOW CAKE TO ABSORB ALL GLAZE.



    GLAZE

    POUND BUTTER
    CUP WATER
    1 CUP SUGAR

    BOIL 5 MINUTES, STIRRING CONSTANTLY. ADD CUP RUM AND POUR OVER CAKE.

    Loretta, the sugar syrup makes the glaze in the icing, but if you can find sugar free cake mix and pudding, the cake part should adapt to sugar free.

    Does the alcohol burn off? My husband and I don't drink but cook with wine when it cooks out.

    It burns off the cake, but if you want the glaze alcohol-free, you might need to boil it a while, at least to a rolling boil, I would think. I always use the good dark rum because it leaves more flavor. There might be a conversion for rum extract, but that has alcohol, too.

    I thin it is the same as the bicardi rum cake. I usually make it at Christmas or Thanksgiving. It simple to make and really good.

    I usually make it at Christmas and Thanksgiving. That way you only battle it the hip once, but for a longer period of time, since we have such low calorie foods then! :-D
