Slices of tender white cake feature pretty flecks of fresh mint. The rum glaze and whipped cream garnish are great!

Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ white cake mix
  • 1 cup unflavored carbonated water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup rum or 1 teaspoon rum extract plus 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 3 egg whites

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup rum or 2 teaspoons rum extract plus 1/2 cup water

Garnish

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 15 fresh mint leaves, if desired
  • Shredded lime peel, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter into pan.
  • 3
    Bake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 15 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, mix glaze ingredients. Heat to boiling over high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium; continue to boil 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until glaze has thickened slightly.
  • 5
    Poke warm cake every inch with fork tines. Pour glaze slowly over cake. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 6
    In small bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar on high speed until soft peaks form. Garnish each serving with whipped cream, mint leaf and shredded lime peel. Store loosely covered.

  • A mojito typically refers to a cocktail made with lime juice, sugar, mint leaves and rum. We've taken those same flavors and turned them into a tasty cake.
  • In a pinch, use purchased frozen whipped topping, thawed, instead of making your own whipped cream.
