Another one of my grandma's favorite recipes. Everytime she makes it, she reminds me that she had to ask her neighbor Fran for 1/2 cup of rum when she wanted to make this. I have no idea how many servings this makes and she doesn't remember either, so I'm guessing at that and the prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For Cake: Place nuts in the bottom of a greased bundt pan. Combine all remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and pour into the bundt pan over the nuts.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan and poke cake with skewer or fork all over to create holes for the glaze to sink inches.
  3. For Glaze: Heat all ingredients until melted. Pour over the cake while still in the bundt pan. Leave the cake in the pan overnight in the refrigerator.

Made this for DH's birthday. He loves chocolate, but I thought I'd try this. "New favorite cake." He declared! I used chopped pecans and Malibu rum.
