I was just speaking to my friend who had been to a recent trip to the Caribbean Island and he was telling me about this Tortuga Rum Cake which he had and was raving about it. Apparently recipe for making Tortuga rum cake is a secret but then speaking to him I just thought of coming up with a Caribbean flavoured cake that is to combine ingredients like pineapple, coconut and rum. This recipe is quiet moist with a sweet and tangy flavour of pineapple with a hint of coconut and almost intoxicating flavour of rum I have made this in to a muffin but then you have a choice of making it into a pine apple upside down cake as well.
40 ml Old Monk Rum
45gms desiccated coconut
1tsp Baking powder
1/4th tsp salt
Keep aside to cool it down.
Add the egg and whisk it well slowly add milk to the mixture and go on whisking it. Sieve together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the desiccated coconut as well.Now slowly fold the mixture. The batter will belittle lumpy don’t worry about it.
I have used this paper cups to make this muffins u can also use muffins moulds or you can use a cake mould and make it in to a cake form.Pour the batter in the moulds . Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
Prepare a Glaze for the muffins
50 gms Grain Sugar
50 ml Old monk Rum
