Ox tail is a no-no, at least for now...and quince are not in season yet, so I put my brunette head together and came up with a plantain pine nut. Flavors are great. Plantains are a lot more starchy than bananas and provide a sensationally unique flavor, and the pine nuts pair it quite nicely.
Plantain in the cake and icing, topped with pine nuts and that is a plantain chip on top :) Mmm.
These were made as mini cupcakes. Best eaten in one big bite.
