Bimini Chocolate Mango Rum Cake

The Bahamas is one of rare islands that doesn't grow sugar cane and make its own rum, although Bacardi had a factory here to produce its brands. So, when it comes to this recipe, feel free to use whatever brand of rum you prefer.


Chocolate Cake:
1 fresh egg
½ cup granulated sugar
3 ½ tablespoons oil
1/3 cup full fat milk
¼ cup sour cream
1/3 cup cocoa powder
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda

Rum Syrup:
½ cup water
½ cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons dark rum

Combine all wet ingredients together using hand whisk. Add sifted dry ingredients slowly while combining, until smooth and lump free. Pour into greased Individual Bundt molds ¾ full.

Bake at 340 degree F until firm and when tested with skewer, comes out clean. While still warm pour over ¼ cup of rum syrup into each cake and allow to cool in mold
before unmolding.

Serving Suggestions
Peel and curt fresh mangos into 1/3" cubes and fill inside of bundt cake and serve with coconut sauce and tamarind syrup of fresh passion fruit and garnish with freshly picked mint.
