Holidays, A different kind of Carrot Cake!

Happy Easter!




We had a community Easter Egg hunt Saturday, all the little bunnies were so adorable

Baskets in hand, my bunnies patiently waited for the hunt to begin…



For our celebration we had a “Carrot” cake





This is not your traditional carrot cake,

this is a Beach Bum Butter Rum Cake

You can substitute rum extract instead of the rum if you like




A very easy cake to make, and to save time I used cream cheese icing in a can, doctored with a little almond extract



The bunnies were hopping in delight!!


A Different Kind of Carrot Cake {Butter Rum Bundt}

  • Servings: 12
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 box Butter Pecan Cake mix

3/4 cup Coconut Rum or substitute with milk and 2 tsp rum extract

4 large eggs, room temperature

1 stick, 1/2 cup, unsalted butter, melted

1 pkg. instant butterscotch pudding

1 cup butterscotch chips

1/4 cup sugar*

Spray a bundt pan thoroughly with cooking spray.   Put sugar in pan and over the sink, tilt and tap pan, turning making a thin sugar coating over the inside of the pan.  This makes the outer layer slightly crunchy, omit this step if desired.

Combine dry cake mix with pudding mix. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring well. Add butter and rum, mix, and then stir in butterscotch chips.

Put batter into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, checking often near the end of baking time.  Do not over bake.

Cool cake thoroughly before icing

Shortcut Almond Cream Cheese Icing

1 can prepared cream cheese icing

2 tsp almond emulsion

Stir together and ice cake.  Decorate with sprinkles, more butterscotch chips or candies

I used gummy carrots for an Spring & Easter touch



Welcome Spring!

  11. It’s adorable, and I love the decorations too. (But who’d want to swap out the rum? Not me!)

  12. Jacqueline says:

    That sounds like a fabulous cake! I love the addition of the butterscotch chips! Thanks for including a version with rum flavor. I always substitute so it is nice when that is included.
    Can you imagine filling all of the eggs for a community party?!! Hubby and I spent hours just filling our family’s eggs. They look so ready to run!

  13. Jenna, Your baby bunnies are growing! The baskets are so cute and I hope they were filled after the hunt! Yum — the cake sounds delish. I had no idea there were box mixes for butter pecan! I may try this next weekend, maybe with flowers on top for spring which is trying to appear! Linda
