As far back as 1682 cake dances were popular in Ireland. Couples competed, the winners might have been the handsomest couple who were lightest on their feet, or those who danced the longest or a pair that announced their engagment. The winners who 'took the cake' then shared it with their friends!.The dances took place on the patron day (St. Patricks) or on special occasions like Easter.
I've tried these flapjacks and for Paddy's Day, added some green food coloring to the coconut.
