  • 1 teaspoon dark rum

  • 2
    In large bowl, mix cake mix, 1 cup rum, the water, oil and eggs with whisk until blended. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 3
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from muffin cups to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  • 4

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To toast the coconut, place a small skillet over medium heat. Cook the coconut, stirring frequently, until golden. Remove from heat immediately.
  • tip 2
    If desired, you can use a simple vanilla buttercream instead of the rum frosting.
