      Appropriately named, indeed. As the cake was baking, the sweet aroma of cooking spices and tropical fruit, filled the house; so reminiscent of happy holidays in the West Indies. Spicy-sweet without offending the palate. And you are right. "This is good enough to skip the frosting." So, I complied. I made two batches of this recipe. One cake was frosted to be loyal to the recipe contest, and one cake was not frosted to be loyal to your "skip the frosting" suggestion. Both cakes are a pleasure to serve. I shall frost the second cake just before going to church on Sunday morning and add it to the treat table during the coffee hour. I shall add this recipe to my assortment of bake-sale and coffee hour goodies contribution. It is a nice treat to replace boring store-bought cookies. Thank you for sharing your talent.

      I made exactly as the recipe stated except for the raisins in the cake and the butterscotch in the frosting. I used milk chocolate chips instead, and it came out just the way I had hoped it would. Lovely cake that makes me want to get up and do the hula!
