Try my bajan bakes recipe, reminds me of how my Mom used to do them back in Barbados 🙂
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- ¾ cup warm water
- Oil for frying
In large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Add butter and work it into the mixture. Slowly add water in a stream, stirring with wooden spoon until the flour starts to leave the sides of the bowl.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough and roll out to cut out circles or roll into balls.
Place the balls/circles into the frying pan or deep fryer and fry until golden brown. Serve while hot.
Enjoy your bakes! You can also serve with grapes and fried egg!
