Tortuga Rum Cakes or similar ?
I keep getting spam emails from Tortuga Rum Cakes, a known heavenly dessert from the Cayman Islands, I believe.
Are these available anywhere in Boston? They sound amazing but I'm not interested in ordering one / paying for shipping.
Is there anything else similar in the area, say, somewhere like Lenny's bakery in Mattapan? Without nuts, as I'm allergic..
King Arthur Flour just posted a recipe for something like this on their website. It calls for dusting the sides of the pan with ground pecans, but you could also do it with flour and I think it would be fine. Here's the link:
They also have a blog entry dealing with it in greater detail which links from the recipe itself.
I have neither tried this recipe nor the original that inspired it, but I often have good luck with their recipes.
