What in ponche crema? Ponche crema is a Trinidadian and Venezuelan cream-based liqueur. Recipes vary depending on the region, but main ingredients typically include milk, eggs, sugar, rum, and other minor ingredients such as vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and lemon rind.

A red drink made from the red flowers of the sorrel plant. - vega_pride
It is normally just called black cake. It is made with many fruits like raisins and prunes that are soaked in rum and cherry brandy. In my home, after you bake it, as soon as it is out of the oven, they pour a bit of cherry brandy over the top of the cake and let it soak in to get the inside of the cake moist.
I don't know if this is the same as 'Christmas pudding' because I have never eaten Christmas pudding. - vega_pride
