    Ms*Bindy's Note:

    Enjoy the flavors of the Caribbean in this Plantain-Coconut Streusel Cake with Butter Rum Glaze. This recipe was created for RSC#8, and I know you will enjoy it! To lower the fat content, you can substitute non-fat plain yogurt for the sour cream. Another popular substitution is bananas for the plantains, but if you do that you will definitely have a sweeter cake with a stronger banana flavor.

      This was good but not what I was expecting. It was definately moist. Next time I think I would use a different type of glaze for it (a thicker one). When I poured it over the cake it made it a little soggy.

      We really enjoyed this cake. I used banana because that is what I had on hand. The strussel center made a nice difference. Thank you for the recipe

      Bunny Mom, I've heard so much praise about your coffee cake that I tried it yesterday for the birthday party of my flatmate's girlfriend, which was held in our flat. There were people from lots of different nations including India, the Netherlands, Italy, the Caribbean, England, Scotland, Luxembourg and of course Switzerland invited, and everybody loved it! The taste of the cake is 5 stars for sure - and as everybody else I loved the streusel and the rum glaze, well done! The reason why I rate this recipe 4 stars and not 5 is that I wouldn't bother buying plantains for this cake if I made it again. I would use bananas instead, as they are cheaper (well at least in Switzerland), have more flavour and there's no need to cook them. Thanks for developing this lovely cake!
