Nothing says Christmas more than a traditional rum cake, which you can now infuse with your choice of marijuana. Enjoy this canna-rum cake during this year’s Christmas celebration.
Rum cake ingredients:
- 1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1 (3.5-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup water
- 1 tablespoon cannabis coconut oil
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup rum
- ½ cup chopped pecans
- 3 tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup water
- 1 cup white sugar
- ½ cup rum
Rum cake directions:
- Preheat oven to 325ºF.
- Grease and flour one 10-inch tube pan.
- Combine cake mix and pudding mix.
- In another bowl, beat eggs, water, vegetable oil, cannabis oil, and rum until frothy.
- Add cake mix/pudding mixture and beat until well mixed.
- Spread pecans evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan and pour batter over pecans.
- Bake cake at 325ºF for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry when inserted in the center.
- Allow to cool in the pan for five minutes and remove from pan.
- Place in serving dish immediately, right side up (pecans should be on the bottom).
- During the last 15 to 20 minutes of baking time, combine butter or margarine, water, and sugar, in a saucepan and bring to boil over high heat.
- Reduce heat to medium and boil rapidly until it’s very thick and syrupy stirring frequently. The syrup must be reduced quite a bit and be very thick, otherwise, it will make the cake mushy.
- Remove from heat and add rum.
