These tasty treats pack on heck of a punch! I love these amazing Rum Muffins and I know you will too, and if not, after one or two you won€™t know the difference anyway. Up in Northern California I made these for a couple buddies over at and we did a little beer pairing for dessert. We had an awesome time. So I wanted to bring you the recipe for these great Rum Muffins. Enjoy!
For rum sauce
  Yellow cake mix 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Pillsbury Moist Supreme, Pudding In The Mix)
  Eggs 3
  Cold water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Canola oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Chopped pecans 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Rum sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter 1
  White sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dark rum 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Meyers)

Preheat oven for 325 F. Mix the cake mix, eggs, water, rum, and oil in large bowl. Pour mixture into large Texas size muffin tins with inserts. Sprinkle hand fulls of the pecans over the batter and then bake for 25 minutes. For the Rum Sauce take a pot and add Butter, Water, and Sugar. Heat on stove top with high flame for about 5-7 minutes whisking constantly. Remove from heat and pour in Rum mix well and spoon sauce over warm muffins! Delicious!

These are absolutely delicious!! I baked these for a Halloween party and they were a huge hit, and my mom and I baked them together this weekend too. YUM! I do have a question for you, though. Is the rum sauce supposed to caramelize? As I've been making it, it's ended up very liquid and has made a bit of a mess when I pour it over the muffins. The video seems to cut off before that point, so I can't tell whether or not it's supposed to come out like this! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!
