Our Caribbean Black Cake, also known as Fruit Cake, Rum Cake, Christmas Cake, and Wedding Cake, is a cherished tradition in many Caribbean countries. This dessert is not just a cake, it’s a celebration of rich, decadent flavors and moist textures that make every occasion special.
The Black Cake is a staple during Christmas and is enjoyed year-round during weddings, birthdays, and other special occasions. Its dark, dense texture and deep, intense flavor set it apart from other desserts, making it a unique treat.
Our cake is crafted with a blend of basic ingredients like eggs, flour, butter, salt, baking powder, and brown sugar, enhanced with the zest of lime. What makes it truly special is the addition of rum and red wine-infused pureed raisins, glazed cherries, prunes, mixed peel, and other dried fruits and nuts. We also add a mix of exotic spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, and almond, resulting in a deliciously moist and flavorful cake.
The cake’s distinct dark hue and flavor come from browning, a key step in its preparation. Our Black Cake is more than just a dessert, it’s a labor of love that brings a taste of the Caribbean to your table.
