Butter Pecan Rum Cake

butHoliday desserts are fun, but we all know that an old-fashioned bundt or coffee cake will always take the grand prize. Traditional desserts hold a precious place in my heart, especially ones like this delicious, Paula-Deen inspired Butter Rum Cake! From its moist, vanilla cake to its shiny glaze, this is the ultimate no-fail dessert! The cake itself is an unbelievable vanilla pound-type-cake that I added a sprinkle of pecans to before baking. Then, the butter rum glaze infuses the cake with an extra juicy sweetness. If you’re not a fan of strong alcohol flavors in your desserts, I would recommend using less rum in the recipe because as it warns, it contains a pretty large amount or rum (don’t worry, the alcohol cooks off during baking). Regardless, this cake was impossibly amazing and is one of my favorites yet; the pictures don’t nearly do it justice. Enjoy!
