Jamaican Black Cake


Jamaican black cake is a Caribbean dessert cake delicacy which contains a small portion of rum, wine, and fruit mix. Where did black cake originated is a thing of the past. Here is a quick overview. In most of the Caribbean, rum cake, black cake, or Jamcian fruit cake is a traditional Caribbean holiday season Jamaican dessert treat. Dried fruit mix and/or cherries are soaked in rum and wine for months and then added to dough mix, prepared with brown sugar which has been caramelized. 

In Trinidad and Tobago, fruits are preserved in cherry brandy to be used in the making of the black cake. Black cake is traditionally associated with Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago and throughout Central America. It is sometimes called Trinidad Christmas black cake. 

In Puerto Rico, rum cake is called Bizcocho de Ron, and is a sponge cake, so as to absorb the rum. Raisins and sultanas may be soaked in rum for one day or one night. Bizcochos de Ron is given as gifts during the holiday season. 

Many island travelers and/or vacationers go out of their way to pick up the Caribbean prepared rum black cake during the thanksgiving and Christmas seasons from the Islsnac Shop. Islsnac black cake is made with cherries and raisins soaked in rum and wine, brown sugar, and a bittersweet caramel called "browning". Black Cake is also known as fruit cake, Caribbean fruit cake, rum cake, Jamaican black fruit cake, or Christmas cake. Jamaican black cake is traditionally enjoyed with Sorrel Drink
