Merry Christmas

Since my Christmas cards are still not here, our neurotic kitty would like to do the pleasures. Like her new hat?

And here's a yummy cake that we made yesterday. It was a huge hit.

Golden Rum Cake

1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
1 yellow cake mix
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. veggie oil
1/2 c. dark rum

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly over the bottom of the pan. Combine cake mix and pudding mix. Add eggs, water, oil and rum. Blend well and pour over nuts in pan. Bake 60 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes. Pour glaze over cake in pan, allowing it to seep around the edges. After cake is soaked in the yummy rum glaze, invert and serve.

Glaze: In a saucepan, combine 1/2 c. butter, 1/4 c. water and 1 c. sugar. Boil over med heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 c. rum.
