Sugar cake is a simple treat known throughout Trinidad and the Caribbean. All that is needed to make Trinidad Sugar Cake is sugar that is boiled with water and grated ginger until it forms a thick syrup. Finely shredded coconut, cream of tartar, and typically red food coloring are then stirred until the coconut has absorbed all the syrup. The cakes are then free-formed by spooning the coconut batter onto palm leaves or pressed into a baking dish to set before cutting. As per its name, these cakes do contain a lot of sugar. However, to make them guilt-free and healthier, the granulated sugar substitute replaces regular granulated sugar, making this version of the recipe low-carb and keto.
