Plantain Coconut Milk Cake Pudding

January 29, 2013

Caribbean Royalty 

When I was a little girl I imagined I was a princess of the 8 kingdoms of Jamaica.  It is a fantasy I had throughout my childhood and I always imagined the beautiful world I would create for myself as a woman based on my childhood fantasies.  In the last year I have dedicated my hobbies towards fulfilling such dreams.  Dancing to portray a stunning depiction of Caribbean dance, rapping to be the voice of my generation and creating unique Caribbean food that brings an abundance of sunshine.  This pudding is definitely going on my menu in one of my Caribbean restaurants.  I still need to perfect it, but the sunshine is peeping through the clouds in this bowl of yumminess.
