Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 350°F. Sprinkle pecans evenly onto bottom of well-greased fluted tube pan. Place cake mix, eggs, sour cream, 1/2 cup of the rum and oil in large bowl; beat with electric mixer on medium speed 2 min. or until well blended. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted near center of cake comes out clean; cool cake 10 min. in pan on wire rack. Remove cake from pan; cool completely.
Place sugar, butter and 2 Tbsp. water in small saucepan; bring to boil on medium heat, stirring frequently. Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup rum, stirring until well blended. Drizzle over cake slices.
Your loved ones will know it's a special occasion when you serve this indulgent rum cake.
Substitute walnuts for the pecans.
For a change of pace, top cake slices with rum-flavored whipped topping. Just add 1 to 2 Tbsp. rum glaze to each cup of thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping; stir gently with wire whisk until well blended. Spoon over cake slices.
