Coconut sweetbread has played an important role in lives of everyone’s childhood here in the Caribbean. We all have memories of grating our fingers every weekend as we laboured in anticipation of our favourite snack. If you didn’t eat the majority of the coconut while grating it, the reward was a warm slice of heaven.

In modern times, things have been made a bit more convenient, you can buy frozen grated coconut at the supermarket, or coconut milk powder. Some people say that the freshly grated coconut always tastes better. That might be true or it could just be a matter of personal preference since in most cases it was the children of the house who were responsible for grating the coconut.
