Piperaceae (Pepper family).

Cake bush is a perennial bushy shrub growing in moist, shady spots in the Amazon rainforest in Surinam.
Unlike other Piperaceae species, this one is easy to recognize due to the typical heart-shaped leaves with 7 - 8 nerves which end in one point at the base.
It is also easy to recognize for the strong licorice (anise) smell.
The leaves contain flavonoids (vitexin, marginatoside).
