rum cake

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I want to make a rum cake , but I was wondering if i could just substitute some water with rum using a regular box cake mix. I guess i'm being lazy , i'm just more into the decorating instead of the unique tasting cake. If I can how much do I use b/c i don't want alcohol with a cake , i want a cake with a taste of rum .... icon_biggrin.gif

thanks ladies

I would use 1/4 to 1/3 cup of rum as part of the liquid in the cake. If you need more rum flavor, you could make a symple syrup or rum glaze

Yes you can do a rum cake with a box. In fact, the Cake Mix Doctor book has 2 different versions - a Bacardi Rum cake with a yellow cake mix and a Double-Chocolate Rum cake with a devil's food mix. PM me if you want the recipes and I can send them to you.

Basically though, looks like about 1/2 cup of rum in the cake...

Here is without question the recipe for the finest rum cake I've ever eaten. This recipe was put out by Bacardi in the early 70's or 80's. I recently made it for my mother-in-law on her 80th Birthday. She invited all her church lady friends over, I thought I'd have an uprising on my hands! It's the very first thing you put in the pan that makes it super special.... the pecans. And of course, as with any rum cake, the longer it sits, the better it gets! ENJOY

Thank you!! That was a real strain on my eyes. I have some coconut rum I bet would be delish in this in place of the dark rum. Yum!

I can't wait to try that recipe. My husband came home last week and asked if I had a recipe for Rum cake. Someone at his work wanted one. Thanks. One question - how long do you let it cool before inverting? thanks

I h ave tried the bacardi rum cake (from the cake mix doctor) many times and it always a hit. I will wholeheartedly vouch for it!

Just an FYI the Barcardi Rum cake recipe that designbydelights posted is the same recipe that is in the Cake Mix Doctor Book.

As far as how long to let it cool before inverting - the CMD book says wait 20 minutes before inverting when using a bundt pan or 10-15 minutes with a regular layer pan...

Does anyone have a good rum cake recipe from scratch?

I think I'll make this cake for the weekend, using coconut rum in place of the dark.

I tried this recipe two days ago and it is delicious. Everyone loved it. So yes it is a good recipe. I also would like to know if anyone has a recipe from scratch. Searched online and couldn't find one.
Thanks
