Glazed Spiced Rum Pound Cakes
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
Makes2 loaves (16 slices each)
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 5 large eggs
- 1/3 cup spiced rum
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 2 teaspoons water
- 2 teaspoons spiced rum
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
- Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour two 9x5-in. loaf pans. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in rum and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
- Spoon batter into prepared pans. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine sugar, butter, water and rum. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat; drizzle over warm cakes. Sprinkle with pecans. Cool completely on wire racks.
Editor's NoteTo toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

I made this pound cake to give for Christmas gifts. The cakes in the loaf pans baked up beautifully, and with the Spiced Rum Glaze, they were very nice. I will make this often!
