If you seek a festive dessert that your guests have most likely never enjoyed before, you’ve come to the right place. This recipe delivers the mojito in myriad ways, first in its batter, then in its whipped cream, and finally with a drizzle of lime-mint syrup that ensures its memory will linger long after the last hint of mint has faded from the palate. To add an even more momentous finish to this recipe (which we hope will become the culmination of at least one of your backyard barbecues this summer), the cake is layered, each portion delivering another piece of Cuban heaven. It’s a dish you will remember, right down to your last rum-soaked bite.
