Easy Rum Orange Cake

Moist and delicious, this almost-made-from-scratch Easy Rum Orange Cake starts with a box of yellow cake mix, a package of lemon pudding, and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

But, if you want to make it even easier, skip the fresh-squeezed OJ — it will turn out just as good!

After baking, pour a sweet rum-orange glaze all over the top and let it soak it up. My family loved it!

Easy Rum Orange Cake

Being that it was birthday week for my hubby and that our daughters were in town for the weekend, we enjoyed a nice brunch on Saturday that ended with this Easy Rum Orange Cake for dessert.  

Yes, we had dessert at breakfast. Don’t judge us. We might even have had another slice before the day ended….oh, well…
