Dancing with the flavors of the tropics is simple when mangoes are on hand. This upside-down cake offers a dazzling showcase -- the ripe fruit nestles in a simple caramel, its golden hues and honeyed taste deepening as it bakes. Banana and rum add more tropical notes and help keep the cake moist, from first bite to last crumb.
Whether golden or white, spiced or not, rum makes a great addition to any cocktail. It's toasty in a warming nightcap or cooling in refreshing tropical drink. So grab a cocktail umbrella and get sippin'.
