Laurie Colwin's Black Cake

Caitlin Wheeler | Sep 4, 200106:28 PM     17

I have been rereading Home Cooking and my imagination was caught by the chapter on West Indian Black Cake. The recipe for this calls for something called "Burnt Sugar Essence" which after extensive 'Net research I saw referred to as "browning". Does anyone know where I can find this, preferably in Manhattan? Alternatively, does anyone know where I can get the cake? Simply Caribbean on Sullivan has it sometimes, but it's too much of a crapshoot for my tastes.

Thanks all.
