Cindy Delair


1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
4 eggs
1/2 c. cold water
1/2 c. Barcardi dark rum (80 proof)
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 stick of butter
1/4 c. water
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. bacardi rum
4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
1tbsp. butter or shortening
2 tbsp. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10" tube pan. Mix cake mix, pudding, eggs, water, rum and oil. Pour into the pan. Bake for one hour. Cool in the pan for 25 minutes then invert onto serving plate. Prick top some with a fork. Prepare the glaze by melting the butter in a saucepan; stir in water and sugar. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in rum. Spoon and brush rum glaze evenly over the cake, allowing the cake to absorb the glaze. Prepare chocolate topping by melting the chocolate and butter in heavy saucepan. When cake is cooled completely, drizzle the glaze over the cake and sprinkle with walnuts.
