  • 3.4 ounce package Devil's Food instant pudding mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil (or canola)
  • 3/4 cup Bacardi Silver Rum
  • 2/3 cup huckleberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons silver rum
  • 2 Tablespoons huckleberry syrup (like pancake syrup or substitute schnapps)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12 cup bundt pan with baking spray and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl, and beat until well combined.
  3. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake in preheated oven for 47 to 50 minutes. Cake will start to pull away from the sides and a toothpick will come out almost clean when inserted into center of cake.

  2. Move cake on the rack over to a second plate and continue drizzling with glaze. Repeat process, moving cake back and forth until all glaze is sticking to the cake.
  3. Allow cake to cool completely before serving, 12 to 24 hours.
  4. Cover and store cake on the counter for up to one week.
