News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Tues. Dec. 19, 2023: If you’re looking to savor the delectable taste of Caribbean Black Cake this Christmas, you’re in for a treat! This beloved dessert is a holiday favorite in several Caribbean countries, including Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago. We recently shared the recipe for preparing the fruit mix, and now it’s time to bake this scrumptious cake using those beautifully soaked fruits. Here’s what you’ll need and the steps to follow:



2 pounds of brown sugar
1 pound of butter
12 beaten eggs
1 pound of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of mixed spices
¼ pound of mixed peel
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Red Wine (for caramel)

Begin by making a caramel. In a pot, heat about one pound of brown sugar until it starts to melt. Add at least a cup of wine and simmer until you achieve a dark, rich color.

Grease and double-line an 8-inch baking pan.

Cream the remaining sugar and butter together until the mixture is smooth. You can also use an electric mixer for this step.

Gradually add the beaten eggs, one at a time, and mix them into the batter.

Stir in the prepared fruit and nuts until well combined.

Add enough caramel to achieve your desired darkness.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and mixed spices. Add these dry ingredients gradually and fold them into the batter.

Adjust the consistency by adding a bit more wine or rum until you reach a soft, dropping consistency.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake in a slow oven at 300 degrees F for 2 hours on the middle shelf.

After removing the cake from the oven, immediately drizzle some of the remaining wine or rum over it. Repeat this step 3 or 4 times.

Allow the cake to cool to room temperature.

To preserve the cake year-round, brush it with rum.
