How to make it

  • Blend all dry ingredients & the grated coconut thoroughly. Mix together the coconut milk, vanilla & molasses; then add to dry ingredients, stirring briskly.
  • Place 1/2 cup of this mixture in center of banana leaf ( whatever wrapper you're using) & fold each side of wrapper to the center; overlapping so package will be waterproof; package should be a 6-inch square when wrapped. Tie twine around bundle in one direction & then tie another piece around in other direction (like a gift box). Repeat until all the batter is used up & you have 6 to 8 little packages.Boil these packages in very gently simmering water ( just enough water to cover) for about 40 minutes, or until filling feels firm to the touch.

    Wow! I love the spice mix - the recipe is similar to tamale, but the coconut, molasses and the spice brings it all up a few good steps! Very interesting recipe. I have to try it!
