I had a friend ask me for my decadent cupcake recipe, she wants to use it for a bridal shower she’s planning. I came across several butter rum recipes (and tried dozens) and this was by far the best. I love butter rum cake as a wedding cake, that I used this recipe for my wedding cupcake tree. I’m working on a variation of this recipe for a friend’s baby shower. The cupcakes can be made two days beforehand and decorated the day before. These cupcakes also freeze and defrost well. I suggest using cupcake papers that fit the occasion.
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 c. water
1/3 c. softened butter
2 Tbs. rum extract
Preheat oven 350°F. Mix all ingredients together with a mixer a medium speed, about 2 minutes or until well mixed. Fill 20 lined muffin cups, fill a little more than 2/3 full. Bake about 20 minutes (until an inserted toothpick comes out clean).
I don’t think we can get yellow cake mix here, I think its just sponge mix, but I might tweek a few things and give it a try because those cupcakes at your wedding were delicious!
Thank you! Let me know how your version turns out.
