It is the dream of every Jamaican woman to be able to make this queen of cakes. Several have tried and have gotten aged old generations recipes passed down to them but some how never truly got it quite right since every household has its own secretly guarded variation and never truly give out all of the ingredients or the exact technique utilized..

This best variation of this cake is made by the creaming method. It is packed with dried fruits.

The greatest cake has the texture comparable to an English plum pudding .The colour is truly dark brown and carries a wealthy alcoholic taste. It's also extremely spicy as sometimes there are at least 5 spices and flavours utilized.

1 might attempt to create this browning at home as it's a kind of burnt sugar. However it is by no means quite the same. If an attempt is made to try and make it in an American house ,pretty soon the fire services would arrive running simply because the smoke alarm will go off.
