Gwen Skeva


1 c. chopped pecans
1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
1 pkg. 4 3/4 oz. vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/4 c. oil
3/4 c. cold water
1/4 c. Stroh's Rum (make it the best!)

1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. water
1/8 c. rum

Preheat oven to 325

Heavily grease bundt pan with soft butter.
Sprinkle chopped pecans over butter.

In a large bowl add all the cake ingredients and mix well.
Pour over pecans and bake in preheated oven. Bake 50-55 minutes.
When cake is cooked leave it in the bundt pan while you make the glaze.

For glaze combine sugar, butter and water in a small pan. Bring to a boil.
Cook for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in rum.

I use kebab skewer to make holes in the bottom of the cake for the glaze to soak in. Flip out of pan on serving dish and repeat the love with the glaze on top of cake.
