The one thing about this Christmas ......

That I missed the most aside from the sunshine and the warmth was the lack of cake. Ya believe that for the whole season I have yet to have one slice of Great (black) Cake, or pudding or sweet bread.

Had Chocolate cake last night and was offering some other pastry things but for a true West Indian like me this thing just not right at all. It just take away from the experience.

Seriously it just takes away some of the seasonal spirit. I suffering! sigh!

Hi Jdid-Sorry you didn't get your black Christmas cake. Chocolate is yummy, but somehow doesn't do the trick during Christmas especially when we're away from home. My mother bakes every year, but somehow it was kinda dryish this year. Nothing that lacing it with more rum won't fix. Have a good day.

Hi Jdid,
Three things cannot miss me at Christmas...Fruit cake, Sorrel and Ham. Don't suffer too much besides you can still make up for it.

Jdid,

No black cake...why? No celebration for us is complete without a black cake and a milk cake for that matter. Like Abeni, we have a few sitting around here too. I'm so tickled by how similar the various caribbean and central american traditions are.

Jdid, even if yu didn't have time to soak raisins & fruit, yu can still blend them wif some rum at de last minute before yu bake--use some burnt-sugar to blacken de batter, and sit de finished cake in wine for a while. It'll be worth your while. :-)
