——– ———— ——————————–
1 cup pecans — chopped
1 package yellow cake mix — no pudding mix
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup Bacardi rum
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Bacardi Rum

Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Grease and flour 10-inch tube or
12-cup Bundt pan. Sprinkle nuts over bottom of pan. Mix all
cake ingredients together. Pour batter over nuts. Bake about
one hour. Cool for approximately 30 minutes and invert onto
serving plate. Make glaze while cake is cooling. Prick all over
the top of cake with a toothpick. Drizzle and smooth glaze evenly
over top and sides, allowing glaze to soak into cake. Keep spooning
the glaze over cake until all glaze has been absorbed.

Glaze: Melt butter in a medium size saucepan. Stir in water and
sugar. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat
and cool slightly. Stir in rum slowly. While warm, spoon over cake.
