This dessert inspiration came from Sugar Loaf in the Florida Keys where I stayed with my friends. My guide friend Sheila took me to a little bakery and we shared a mango cake. Being one not to leave “well enough” alone, I came home and made my own version of a kicked up mango cake.
I made a banana bread batter and added Captain Morgan’s spice rum, along with mangoes and coconut. Crystallized sugar on top brushed with more rum gives this sugar loaf it’s crowning glory.
