Sugar Cake (Grated)
Guyanese Classic Recipe!
1 dry coconut
1 lb. dark sugar
1/4 pint water (the water in the dry coconut may be used)
Flavouring-vanilla, ground ginger, or dried orange peel


Grate the flesh of the coconut.

Boil the sugar and water together, until the syrup spins a thread.

Add the grated coconut, orange peel, and ginger to the syrup and cook until the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan. Stir constantly.

Moisten a pastry board with water, and using a spoon, drop the mixture onto the board in lumps.

When the cakes are set on the one side, turn them onto the other side to dry, flat side up.
