    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.

      Great cake! This cake is so moist and melts in your mouth. After 35 minutes the top began to brown and separate, I checked it and it was ready to come out of the oven. The plantains did not really give it much flavor but loved the butter rum glaze. I am going to make this again without boiling the plantains first. Wonderful submission! Good luck Chef!!! -- posted Mar 4, 2006 UPDATE: I need to update this review because the next day, after all the flavors melded... I could taste the plantains, the texture was still perfect, and the rum glaze was divine! I guess it just had to age to perfection! Great Recipe!

      Man, oh Man, oh Man.... Bakery Quality, I kid you not. Dynamic flavour. It is recipes such as this that makes me wish my mother were still with me... She loved good coffee cake.... and I am my mother's daughter. I had recently purchased an additional bundt pan because of its quality and design. Your Calypso Coffee Cake looked gorgeous when removed from the pan. As the women in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" said, "It's a Bundt"! It certainly is. Glazed with your Butter Rum and topped with confectioner's sugar, it boasted a most impressive presentation. A printed copy of your recipe will be included with the Cake when offered in our annual fund raising, bake sale, silent auction. Thank you Chef, for putting your talents to such good use.

      This recipe was very tasty - but on the dry side. I think some addition of vegetable oil to the batter (or some other form of liquid) might make a more moist cake. I noticed even the batter was very thick.
