Trinidadian Sugar Cakes

Author/Submitted by: Nicole Farmer <N.Farmer@CAR0201.WINS.ICL.CO.UK>
Servings: 1
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

4  Cups  Grated Coconut
1  Cup  Water
1  Cup  Sugar
1/2  Tea  Cream Of Tartar
1  Tea  Almond Essence
    Few Drops Of Food Colouring, * see note

* (Very few! Otherwise you'll have flourescent!) 1. Boil sugar and water to form a light syrup. 2. When bubbles the size of small pearls appear, add grated cocunut and cream of tartar. 3. When the cocunut mixture comes away from the sides of the pan easily, remove from heat and beat with a spoon for 3-5 minutes. 4. Add essence and food colouring and mix well. 5. Drop by spoonfuls on an oiled cookie or enamel tray. 6. Allow to harden completely. 7. Store in an airtight container. Tip: You can divide the mixture into batches before Step 4 and add a different color to each batch. It looks really pretty in a glass cookie jar after its finished. In spite of the high sugar content, this is a really popular snack with parents for the kids. It's quick & easy. There aren't any preservatives. What you see is what you get. You have to like coconut, though.
