1 pound cornmeal
2 ounces flour
1/2 pound sugar or brown sugar
1/2 cup grated coconut
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups milk or coconut milk

Mix all dry ingredients and the grated coconut. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until all sugar has dissolved.

Lay out pieces of banana leaf (cleaned). Drop 1/2 cup of mixture into center of each leaf; fold and tie with a string (or a piece of banana bark for real authentic touch).

Drop each parcel into a large pot of boiling water and simmer for 40 minutes. Serve warm.

Substitution tip: Don't have any banana leaves around? Use a cooking bag instead.
