  • 4 Eggs Large
  • 3/4 cup Butter Unsalted, Room temperature
  • 1 cup Sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp Rum extract
  • 1 box Yellow cake mix
Cinnamon Pecan Mixture
  • 3 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup Finely chopped pecans I only used 2 tbsp because my family doesn't like nuts
Vanilla glaze
  • 2 cups Powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp Whole milk
  • 1 tbsp Butter Unsalted, Melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, butter, sour cream, sugar, rum extract, cake mix and mix until just combined.

  2. Add half the batter in a greased/floured bundt pan. Use a 10-12 cup bundt or tube pan.

  3. Spread it out with a spatula. 

  4. In a mixing bowl, mix together brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon powder, chopped pecans. 

  5. Sprinkle this cinnamon mixture over the cake batter. 

  6. Pour remaining batter on top and spread it with a spatula. 

  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until an inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean. 

  8. Allow the cake to cool down for 15 minutes. Then, run a spatula around the edge of the pan and center of the pan. Flip the cake onto a cooling rack and gently remove the pan. 

  9. Allow the cake to cool down completely. 

  10. While it’s cooling, prepare the glaze by mixing together powdered sugar, whole milk, melted butter, vanilla extract until thick, smooth and creamy. 

  11. Drizzle glaze over cooled cake and sprinkle some chopped walnuts or pecans for decoration. Enjoy!
