I’ve never had black cake was not tasty (at least as I remember). As I write this post, I know, Mom makes some for the holidays too. I usually do my order of one for the road. I love this cake with hot coffee at any time of day. Here in the U.S., you could use the darkness to this recipe to an ethnic supermarket to find. My family is happy that it shipped directly from Belize.
This cake is a part of the culture of Belize, especially around the holidays. Most are a number of these cakes throughout the year to keep. Some days, I saw one of his cabinet pull mom, who was on a holiday before cooking. The taste will naturally be different from that of freshly baked cakes. Families are to share and share this delicious dessert. This cake will last a year, if maintained properly. It is a practice that some type of rum Sprinkle when cooked. Rum is stored for some time. The flavor of the cake will change overtime, of course, but it also preserved. Run in the Caribbean, Belize common cold is produced locally. I’ll take any kind of rum, the same behavior.
