In the Caribbean, we have a dish called Fry Bake. What is Fry Bake? Fry Bake is basically a piece of bread dough that we deep fry. It is made in many of the different Caribbean islands with slight variation and by different names.


Ingredients: 2 cups all purpose flour 2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1/2 cup Luke warm water oil for frying

Cover the mixing bowl with the dough with a damp paper towel or cloth and allow to rest for about 15-25 minutes.

Separate the dough into smaller pieces and form into balls. You should get about 6 balls.

Put a deep pot on the stove to hot. Pour in about a cup of oil to deep fry the dough. Allow the oil to get very hot.

Gradually add the a circular shape dough into the hot oil. It will drop to the bottom of the pot. As the dough begins to get hot and cook it will begin to float and the bottom will get golden brown and, it will begin to swell up like a balloon. Turn over and allow the other side to get golden brown.

Note: be sure that you adjust your stove to medium heat. If the heat is too high the bakes will get brown very quickly but not fully cooked inside.
