    I used a butter pecan cake mix and this is the best rum cake I have ever had. I am a marketing rep and I make rum cakes for my referral sources and this will definitely be my new recipe. Soooo good!!!!!!!

    This was a great cake. My husband and son loved it, especially the glaze. I made two changes. The first change was to use 1 cup of hazelnuts and mix them into the batter and the second change was the type of rum I used. I used some amazing Hazelnut Rum by Rouge. Rouge makes great beer and if you go to their brewery in Oregon, you can buy distilled spirits there. (Rum, Gin and a few others.) This rum gave the cake a "warm" taste and no to much of an alcohol flavor that you sometimes get from other rum cakes. I will be making this again.

    I'm giving it 5 stars because my husband, who RARELY eats cake, loved it. I thought it was a bit too much alcohol for my taste.

    Great recipe. I've been making this for years the only difference being I use 4 eggs instead of 3. either way turns out great!

    I poke holes with a skewer all over the top before I drizzle the glaze...it makes the entire cake moist and flavorful. djang1
