*"Dodo" means "sleep" in French
**Suga' is short for sugar.


Sugar Cake is similar to cookies. It's made with shredded coconut, sugar and a flavoring (like almond extract). Usually food coloring is added to give it color. It's especially popular in Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana.



Thanks to April Mojica for recording her husband singing this song!
