Banana Rum Cake..Drunk & Naked!

I love to frost Naked Cakes! It makes it all about the cake, not just the frosting!  This cake is so moist and tasty, the base of the cake is from a box!  It's Semi Homemade, Amazing...& the First of my Drunk & Naked Recipes. Gotta love the name! ;)))
 Banana Rum Cake..Drunk & Naked

Cake Batter: (see frosting below)

  • 1 box of white cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered vanilla, *optional
  • 1/2 cup of Sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of Rum
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 2 ripe, mashed banana's
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts, medium to fine, divided in half, *reserve half for the frosting

  1. Mix together in a large bowl: The cake mix, vanilla, eggs, sour cream, rum and water
  2. Fold in the mash banana's and 1/2 cup of walnuts
  3. Prepare 2 round cake pans and pour the cake batter equally in both pans
  4. Bake at 350 for 25+ minutes until done
  5. Let cool for 15-20 minutes before turning out
Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 ounces of Cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup of Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar , packed
  • 3 tablespoons of softened butter
  1. Cream together all ingredients
  2. Frost the top of one cake layer, heavily
  3. Place the second cake layer on top, lightly press evenly around the cake, causing excess frosting to squeeze out slightly
  4. Frost the sides of the layered cake with the excess frosting (you may add more if needed), frost with a thin layer, leaving the sides of the cake exposed. As if you were doing a thin glaze.
  5. Frost the top with Frosting as usual and dust with Chopped walnuts.

This cake was amazingly moist, and tasty....
