Jamaican Christmas Vegan Cake - My first attempt :-)
by Natoya Smith
(Ocho Rios, St. Ann, Jamaica)
My favorite memory of Christmas was in 2004 when I baked my first vegetarian fruit cake!
I so surprise at the taste as I did not think that a cake like this could have tasted that good; that cake was the one to be eaten first by the my whole family and friends!
That sounds awesome!
Prior to this, your submission, I never heard of a Jamaican vegan Christmas cake before! So, for me, this sounded like a novelty.
It prompted me to do some reading too, and to my surprise, I realized that it is quite popular these days, Or should I say these Christmas :-), both in an outside of Jamaica.
By the way, I noticed you said FIRST, can I safely assume that you have tried it after that attempt as well?
And did you use rum/wine and soaked the fruits for weeks as well?
Either way, after so much years, you should be a pro by now, right?
So here's my challenge to you Natoya...
Please do me (and my readers) a big favour and share the recipe for this seemingly tasty vegan cake please. You can simply (and in fact, any others who are familiar with this cake) click here to share the recipe in the comments section below.
I'd be happy to review your submission and post.
I saw a few online, for example this one on the BBCGoodFood.com website as well as this one from Domestic Gothess blog.
But Natoya, you and I know very well that there is none quite like the real Jamaican version, right? :-)
So please, post it in the comments here so we all can learn and (hopefully) get family and friends running for ours, just like yours :-)
I hope you don't mind.
Thanks again for sharing my friend! And all the best to you and yours for the season. Your complimentary copy of the Jamaica Insider Guide is on the way!
