How To Make Grater Cake (Pink On Top) Jamaican Style |Easy Pastry Recipe

Jamaican Grater Cake is not a cake rather it is a candy. Simply made with coconut, sugar and flavouring, very basic ingredients. It is sweet, rich and creamy all at the same time. Very straight forward and simple to make.

By the way, it is called Grater cake because theย coconut is grated but it also goes by other names, sugar cake, pink on top. If made right, it should have a thin crusty outside with a tender, pliable and gently chewy inside.

2 cups water
2 cups sugar 1/2 inch ginger
2 cups grated coconut (1 medium) 1/8
