Gluten Free Jamaican Toto Recipe – Easy Coconut Cake

When traveling to the Caribbean I got to indulge in so many great desserts. This Jamaican Toto recipe has one of my favorite ingredients, coconut. A lot of the Jamaican desserts either include coconut, rum, or both. It is very hard for me to pass up on a coconut dessert, my favorite! I love this Jamaican recipe and it pairs perfectly with the Jamaican Jerk Chicken, a traditional Jamaican food.

Toto is a coconut spice cake that is popular throughout the Caribbean. This cake is basically a coconut cake. It is a very easy and plain cake but don’t let that fool you. The combination of spices and coconut makes this cake so delicious. To kick it a notch you can even add dark rum for some extra flavor and make it a coconut rum cake.

Jamaican Toto recipe

This Jamaican Toto recipe is usually served as a snack or a dessert and is typically served at family gatherings. It is prepared with shredded coconut, flour, brown sugar baking powder, baking soda, and coconut milk. A very easy Jamaican dessert recipe.

I altered a few ingredients in this Jamaican Toto recipe and made it gluten-free and low in sugar. This is my version of a Jamaican Toto gluten free coconut cake. I also replaced the milk with coconut cream so this cake is a gluten free dairy free cake.
