Grater Cake is a traditional Jamaican confection (I bet you haven’t heard that word in a long while). It’s grated coconut, sugar and spices. As I’ve always say, Jamaicans love their sugar! At least those over age 60, like me. That’s because we grew up on traditional confections like grater cake, which was one of the sweet treats you could find in almost every Jamaican food shop then… and now. But it wasn’t unusual for people to make grater cake at home. That’s because there are only a few ingredients, and if you have a heavy bottom pot and a big wooden spoon you’re set to get the job done.
