What a superb cake! It manages to be both light and moist at the same time, with great banana flavor enhanced by the hint of rum, and a fairly fine crumb. Slices well even when warm. Baked in a silicone loaf pan, it developed a golden, delicate crust on the sides and bottom. I am glad I decided not to add nuts, but this might be good served with barely sweetened, softly whipped cream sprinkled with some toasted pecans-maybe some mango slices on the plate?
