Using Ramon at Unificacion Maya



I have just finished the Unificacion Maya Ceremonies for another year.  It is pretty all-absorbing for the month of December, and I haven't been able to take even a moment for blogging.  However, it is over now, and I am determined to get back on my usual schedule.

This Pineapple-Ramon Upside Down Cake was the dessert for our second ceremony.


This cake was invented and baked by Doña Juana, the president of the Ix-canaan Women's Group.




We also had a Ramon Information Day.  After the ceremony at the Ixlu Archeological Site on Day 4, we went to the production facility for Nutri-Naturales, where they had prepared a snack of several items made from the ramon flour that they are producing.



They served a hot and a cold ramon beverage with ramon cookies, ramon sweet breads and these excellent ramon rolls (bollitos).

I am so excited to find your blog! I learned about ojoche (ramon nut) in Costa Rica and am trying my first experiments baking with it today. Is there a way you could post a recipe for the pineapple cake--it looks amazing!

Hi Deborah, I'll try to get the recipe from Doña Juana and post it. The cake really was delicious ... I have blogged the recipe for another ramon cake that had bananas in it and it was even better. I'll try to find it.
