Belizean Recipes


Belizean Coconut Bread

1 Pound All Purpose Flour (4 cups)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Instant Yeast
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
1/4 Cup White Sugar
3/4 Cup Dried Grated Coconut
1 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1 Egg Well Beaten


Combine all the ingredients and knead well.  Place the dough in a mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for one hour.  Knead bread with hands and shape bread.  Put dough on a greased baking tray and let bread rise until about double its size.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.  

Belizean Fudge


Mix sugar and milk in a saucepan, add butter and place over low heat, stir until sugar is dissolved.  Bring to boil until soft ball stage 257 degrees F (when dropped into cold water) on candy thermometer.  Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, let cool slightly, then beat until thick.  Pour into greased dish.  Cut in squares when cooled.

For chocolate fudge, add 2 tablespoons cocoa or 2 ozs. chocolate.  I used dark chocolate.  You can also add coconut, nuts, ginger or habanero pepper for an extra kick.

Michelada Drink
1 Serving
  • Mexican beer or Belikin beer -- 1 (12-ounce) bottle or can. 
  • Lime (preferably Key lime), cut into wedges -- 1
  • Bottled hot pepper sauce -- 2 dashes
  • Worcestershire sauce -- 1 dash
  • Fresh ground black pepper -- pinch
  • Season All Seasoning


  1. Fill a tall beer glass with ice cubes. Squeeze the lime wedges into the glass and stir in the Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, season all and pepper.
  2. Pour in the beer, stir and serve.


  • Micheladas are usually made with a light pilsner like Corona, but you can use a dark beer like Negra Modelo if you prefer.  But this drink is best with a Belikin I think.
  • To Rim the Glasses: Mix 2 tablespoons of coarse or kosher salt and 1 tablespoon of chili powder. Wet the rims of the beer glasses with a wedge of lime and dip the rims into the chili salt.
  • Tomatoey Michelada: Like a beery Bloody Mary. Add 1/2 cup Clamato or tomato juice to the above recipe.  
  • Other Possible Additions: A dash of soy sauce or Maggi® seasoning; a shot of tequila.
