    I have never made this recipe; posted in response to a request. I worked with a woman from Guyana many years ago, and she brought a Black Cake to a Christmas party one year; it was fabulous!

      Loved it! I do not understand why everyone waits for Christmas to make these delightful concoctions, I do them year round, though sometime I cheat and have them in form of steamed pudding (very similar). Didn't have any browning sauce so I used a TBSP of chicory coffee instead. Super recipe.

      I love black cake, but I can't say that I'm the best baker. In the past, when I couldn't get it from family during Christmas, I would even order it online from websites like Aunt Eulie's. But I tried your recipe and I was so excited that it came out good. I am practicing so that I can feel confident to share my black cake with others.
