Bahamian Johnny Cake
How to Make Bahamian Johnny Cake
- Combine dry ingredients and cut in the butter until pea sized. Add milk to make a soft dough and knead until smooth. Let dough rest for about 10 minutes.
- You can use either of these cooking methods: Heat a cast iron skillet on very low to medium low heat on the stove top and grease well. Roll out the dough into a disk that neatly fits in the pan. Grill on each side about 10-15 minutes being careful not to burn it. Flipping it is a challenge. I used 2 spatulas in tandem. Check for doneness and cut into wedges and eat. This is how they do it in the Bahamas.
- OR place the dough in a greased 8 or 9 inch round or square pan. Pierce the top with a fork and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with milk, return to oven and bake for 5 minutes more. Then EAT IT.
