Bacardi Chocolate Rum Cake Recipe

Monday, December 17, 2012

I make this cake every year for friends that love Rum.

The buttery Rum flavor with Chocolate is just so addicting.

Most of the cakes are made with Bourbon, this is a nice change. The cake is dense like poundcake and has all the moistness it needs to melt in your mouth. You won't be sorry trying this one. Anyone that loves Rum will love this cake as well.


1/2 cup hot brewed strong coffee

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 box devils food cake mix

1 box instant chocolate pudding

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup sour cream

4 eggs

1/3 cup Rum and 3 tablespoons water


1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup rum

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter, flour a bundt pan.

In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips and hot brewed coffee until smooth microwave 40 seconds and stir to melt chips evenly. Set aside.

Mix all cake ingredients and beat until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture and blend together. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 55 minutes to an hour or until cake is tested with a tooth pick and comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.

In a small saucepan, add butter, sugar bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add rum. Pierce the cake with a fork and pour the mixture over hot cake.

  5. Oh, love this. My SIL's rum cake recipe doesn't have pudding so I will be trying this one next time!

  6. It's like a rum soaked fruit cake without the fruit. I just love the sound of it.

  7. This cake is amazing. I made 6 of them for Christmas gifts. The recipe is so easy and quick. Thank you Claudia, Buon Natale

  8. Making this for new years! Thanks for the Recipe!

  9. In the cake directions you have listed 1/3 rum and 3ablespoons of water. Is that supposed to be 1.3 of a cup, 1/3 of the bottle or what?
