Rum Cake


Rum Cake


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and heavily grease a bundt pan.
  2. Spread pecans along the bottom of the pan.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, oil, rum, water, and vanilla until well combined. Add cake mix and mix until well incorporated, about 3 minutes.
  4. Pour batter into bundt pan over pecans, and bake for about 35 minutes. The cake is done when the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean or with a few crumbs.
  5. While the cake is baking, make the glaze. Melt butter in saucepan, then add Swerve, rum, and water. Whisk until all ingredients are combined. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Once the cake is done baking, place on cooling rack. Gently prick holes into the cake with a skewer. Pour about half the glaze onto the cake.
  7. Once the cake absorbs the glaze, carefully turn it onto the cake plate. Gently prick more holes onto the top of the cake, then pour remaining glaze onto cake.

Note: This cake is best at room temperature. It should last 3-4 days.

Makes about 12 servings.

    I have got to try this wonderful rum cake! It looks absolutely delicious. Never made this kind before. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  • Roberta Shatto

    What can I use to replace the rum? Thank you Roberta

    • Swerve

      Hi Roberta! You could replace the rum with water. It will certainly change the flavor but it will still be good!

  • Roberta

    Would almond extract be good. I love that flavor but not so sure on rum. I love these recipes . I live low carb. Will you have new recipes soon?

    • Swerve

      Hi Roberta! Almond extract would work. It will change the flavor slightly but it should still be delicious! We post new recipes all the time so just keep checking in!
