    byZula's Note:

    More candy than cake really! When I was young, and way before that, this was seen pretty frequently around Bermuda in small shops. Nowadays, you may see it at a charity bake sale or the occasional corner shop run by Bermudians that still keep in touch with the good ol' days!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups sugar
    • 2 cups brown sugar
    • 2 cups grated unsweetened coconut
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon ginger (or more to taste)
    • 2 tablespoons goslings black seal rum (opt., you can substitute with water if wanted.)
    • food coloring (the amount depends on you) (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a heavy-bottomed pot, heat together the sugars and the water until sugar has dissolved and thickened.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining ingredients.
    3. 3
      Cook slowly, stirring for about 20 minutes, or until quite thick.
    4. 4
      Add food coloring if using, before it gets too thick to stir properly.
    5. 5
      Test for doneness by dropping a rounded tablespoon's worth on a damp cutting board.
    6. 6
      If it hardens as it cools, it's done.
    7. 7
      Most people just plop rounded tablespoons of this mixture onto a damp cutting board and let it spread and cool. They're usually about 3 or so inches wide. So, experiment until you get the size you desire.
    8. 8
      Store them in a glass jar or you can wrap them individually in waxed paper.
    9. 9
      Beware! This is very sweet!
