Rum Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by crys loves to cook

I make this during the holidays. Super easy and nobody even cares that it came out of a box, but of course I don't tell them either. Cooking time does not include cooling time. I'm guessing at the cake package size but I think that is right.

This cake is so easy and very delicious and moist! I used 1/3 cup (each) of coconut rum in the cake and the topping (thats what I had on hand). Will definitely be making this again!
