A cake that blends a favorite drink with a rum cake and pound cake. This is dense, but not heavy, and the spicy molasses kick from the dark rum enhances the banana flavor. You may use light or dark brown sugar.
The scotch bonnet pepper is a key ingredient, but if you can't find it, a habanero would make the best substitute. You may want to wear gloves while cutting the pepper and don't rub your eyes until after washing your hands! Time does not include marinating.
A Guyanese recipe I found on a site for Caribbean recipes. If you cannot find a scotch bonnet pepper, you may sub habanero. I haven't tried this yet, and the recipe does not specify servings, so I'm guessing. To give the flavor of the scotch bonnet pepper, but not the heat, simmer it whole as directed in the recipe, but take it out before serving.
