  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup poppy seeds
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a standard Bundt cake pan and flour lightly.
  2. For best results, first combine wet ingredients together in a large bowl and mix, then add dry ingredients and beat 5 minutes. Pour batter into pan.
  3. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, which is about one hour.
