This is a quote.

       I am Aisha Diallo, my mom was born in Gambia  but migrated to America on May 1995. Gambia and America are different such as in time zones, the food, language, and etc.                            

       Pun cakes (whicu sound liks pancakes but is complety different) are a snack/dessert  that is in my culture, thay are used in cultural celebration such as baby showers and weddings. If I had to compared to a food in America I would say a glazed dount. Pun cakes are round like a ball. They are soft on the inside and sidt on the outside, they tatse best when fresh. The way to make pun cakes is to first get flour the throw in some yeast amd baking powder, mix in water in it, add some sugar, some salt, vanilla extract (you can put any other extract if you want). Then you leave it ovenight and the next day roll it into a ball and fry it.

        Culture is important becau it is a part of who I am and where I came from. It may seen just like food, but I think it is more than that. Pun cakes was a receipe passed down from our ancestors, to our parents, to us, to our kids and their kids and the kids kids. It will be passed down for generations so that no forgets what their culture is.
