Sweet, dense and oh so very good. A true pound cake with the flavor of the deep south. The ultimate comfort food! Cooking time is baking time.

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.

  3. Cream butter and slowly add sugar to the soft butter.
  4. Beat, till very light and fluffy.
  5. Add eggs, one at the time, beating well after each addition.
  6. Add vanilla.

  8. Add to butter alternating with the milk.
  9. End with the flour mix.
  10. Fill in prepared pan.
  11. Bake for 1 hour and 35-40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  12. Cool cake completely; then remove from pan.
  13. Tip: At this stage, you might want to wrap the cake in plastic wrap and let it rest for a day, as this will make it moister.
  14. For the sauce, combine cream, butter, sugar, corn syrup and rum in a sauce pan.
  15. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking occasionally.
  16. Cover and continue to boil for 1 minute to wash down the sugar crystals from the side.
  17. Wash the sides with a wet brush to clear off all sugar.
  18. Uncover and boil for 3-4 minutes without stirring.
  19. Cool lightly and drizzle over cake.

I would like to add a box of vanilla pudding to this rum cake, what would I need to add or take away to balance out this pound cake?

Yummy! I made this yesterday. I made a half recipe and cooked it in a loaf pan. It took about 1 hour and 20 minutes to bake. It is flavorful and moist. DH loves the rum glaze, too. Thanks for a good recipe!
