Rum always adds signature flavor to dessert recipes and Southern Rum Cake with Caramel Sauce is no different. This homemade cake recipe also features orange juice and zest for a decadent flavor profile. A box of vanilla pudding is added to the cake mix, which makes the cake even more moist. If you're looking to make a cake from scratch, you can't go wrong with this rum cake! Just when you thought it couldn't get any more delicious, a homemade caramel rum sauce is drizzled on top of the cake. You can top the cake with coconut or chopped pecans, but this cake is just as good on its own!

I've never added rum to a cake before, but this looks like a good recipe to try. I'm sure it adds a great depth of flavor!
