Bahamian - Johnny Cake
If you’re visiting the Bahamas chances are likely high that you’ll encounter the Island staple “Johnny Cake”.
It has a texture that resembles a cross between a dense bread and a slightly sweet cake.
It doesn’t fall within the realm of desserts, it’s actually more comparable to a bread, albeit not typically as light, airy or savory as most varieties.
