Truly, I could eat cake everyday for the rest of my life and probably never tire of it. Layer cake, cheesecake, cupcake, pancake, muffins... If it walks like a cake or talks like a cake. I am chasing it with a fork. So, seriously, this cake is for me. Packed with ripe bananas and some of that amazingly flavorful Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. Yes, rum. Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum is the perfect cooking rum with fall flavors.
This is a moist and delicious cake with an incredible creamy frosting with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and more Captain Morgans. I could eat it all day. I recommend hiding the cake. The crisper drawer may not work for this one. Think more secure. How about a safe. Oh, who are you supposed to be hiding it from? Yourself. As Chad stared at a mostly empty pan, he said... "Huh, must have been good". Yes darling. It was!!!
