    Tall, light & moist! Loved this cake! The pantry mice had been dipping into my rum leaving me with 1/4 cup Pineapple Rum & 1/4 cup Captain Morgan's so my result was a fruity blend. I expected the mango pieces to be inside the cake but surprise - when I de-panned, they were sitting prettily on top. Rather than flouring the pan, I sprinkled it with turbinado sugar & that gave the top a little crunch. Thanks for sharing, Miss Annie!
