Recipe Wednesday: Malagasy Cake – Madagascar

Hello folks!

Another recipe Wednesday means another Wednesday to wet your taste buds and there is definitely something sweet on the menu today.

Our destination this week takes us to the largest island in African and fourth in the world, Madagascar. It is truly a place to behold. Thinking of white sand, unpolluted water, untapped beaches, then yes, you are thinking of the right place. To see more of and explore this wonderful island, click here.

The cuisine of Madagascar is a mix of continents; from South East Asia to Africa, India to Europe, there is a dish that represent the people who settled on the island around 100 CE.

This week, our pallets are going to be watering over a Malagasy cake (I have been blessed to be in a generation of sweet teeth).

If you like to try new things like I do, whip up your baking utensils and let’s get to work!
