Easy Chocolate Italian Spiced Rum Cake Recipe
1 chocolate cake mix made to package instructions.
In the meantime make below:
1 box cooked chocolate pudding made to package instructions and cooled. I used the larger size pudding box.
Then make the syrup below:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon of allspice or cinnamon
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup any white Rum (My cousin Bill said it could use more Rum try 1 cup instead of 1/2 a cup if you love Rum it can't hurt right?)
In a medium saucepan, place the butter, water, sugar and spice in the pan and cook until sugar dissolve around 4 minutes.
Remove from heat stir in the rum.
Pour syrup over warm chocolate cake that has been broken up into pieces and into a container or large trifle bowl (layered looks beautiful). Cool. Spread the pudding on top. Refrigerate until cold. Scoop into small glass dessert dishes. Top with whipped cream or serve with a frozen confection of chocolate gelato and chocolate fudge syrup on top.
