Smaller Cake mix, what do I do for my rum cake

Now that the box of yellow cake mix went from 18.5oz to 16.25 what do I cut out of my recipe? I would add 4 eggs, 1 package of vanilla pudding mix, 1/4 cup of dark rum, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, 3/4 cup of whole milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 cup of chopped walnuts.
