“These chewy-looking chunks of goodness are not brownies. They are homemade, melt-in-your-mouth, coconut milk and sugar cakes by yours truly. They are what we call here in Haiti, Douce Kokoye or Coconut Douce.” – Annick Megie, Tchakayiti
Douce Kokoye (Coconut Sugar Cakes)
- 3 cups coconut milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 drop of vanilla essence
- Key lime zest
Mix all the ingredients (except the vanilla) in a thick-bottom pan. Let the mixture boil for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Once the liquid thickens, add the vanilla and let cook until the preparation is thick enough that it pulls from the sides of the pan, or turns a brown shade.
Spread onto some parchment paper and let cool…bon appétit!
