Italian desserts are so simple, but they are so delicious. This Italian Rum Cake starts out by using a boxed cake mix. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of flavor and customization to this dessert. It’s perfect for a winter dessert thanks to the spicy flavor from the rum. Think about serving it as a Christmas dessert or after a meal with family on the weekend.



Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bundt pan before beginning your preparation work.
