Tipsy cake from Sugar Fix Bakery, Belize City, Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingBelize has different desserts. We have cakes, flans, cold cakes, salads, etc. You will find all kinds of desserts here. 
 
The common desserts that you will find here are cakes and flans. Cold cakes are also very common in Belize. Cold cakes are no-bake cakes. A cold cake is made of biscuits layered with milk and cream and some fruit cocktail on top. You put it in the fridge for several hours and it’s good to go. We call it “cold cake” because you put it in the fridge after preparation. It tastes very good and it’s too easy to make.
 
We have some family members who do not eat sweets so instead of a sweet dessert, we prepare salads for them. We mix cucumber, lettuce and tomatoes, topped with some lime and salt.

Some typical Belizean desserts are:
 
Coconut pie.  Ingredients include 1.5 grated coconuts, 3 eggs (beaten), 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg, 1 teaspoon lemon or vanilla essence, 1 small can evaporated milk and ¾ tin condensed milk.
 
Fudge. Belize fudge is made with sweetened condensed milk. Condensed milk is used a lot in Belizean desserts perhaps because of Belize’s British influence. Ingredients: 1 can condensed milk (Carnation or Nestle), 1/3 cup white sugar or brown sugar, 1/4  -1/2 teaspoon of butter or peanut butter, 1 teaspoon of evaporated milk or half and half, 1 teaspoon vanilla, ½ teaspoon nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, ½ cup chopped peanuts, almonds, walnuts, pecan or any nuts, ½ cup raisins, ½ cup grated coconut flakes.
 
Banana cake.  Banana is another popular fruit of southern Belize. The banana cake ingredients include ½ cup butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 3 ripe bananas puréed, 2 cups flour, ½ teaspoon nutmeg and 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda baking soda.
