Gramma Mary's Rum Cake

My sweetheart's birthday is tomorrow, so we're making one of his favorite cakes. It's a rum cake that his grandmother (Betty Oliver) used to make. His mom just sent me the recipe, so I'm going to make it with the kids this afternoon. I can't wait to taste it!! And I love continuing the tradition of family recipes, so that will make the cake extra special!

Gramma Mary's Rum Cake

1 Duncan Hines Yellow Cake mix
4 eggs
1 C. water
1/2 can Eagle Brand condensed milk
1/2 C. softened butter
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
