Bajan Sugar Cakes
(An Indigenous Candy)
- 2 Cups granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon EXOTICA VANILLA ESSENCE
- ½ Cup water
- 1 cup grated coconut
Boil sugar and water together for approximately 5 minutes until syrupy. Test a few drops in a saucer with cold water, when it forms a soft ball, remove from heat. After cooling to medium heat, beat mixture until it begins to crystallize. Stir in EXOTICA ESSENCE and coconut; blend well and pour into mould or drop mixture in a lightly greased shallow pan. Mixture may be divided and coloured as necessary.
A few drops of red food dye give pink sugar cakes.
