Even though it is called Johnny Cake, to Bahamians it is really bread and in some instances it is called Johnny Bread. I call it the “official bread” of the Bahamas and we eat it with our stews, souses and soups.
This is one of the easiest breads to make.
- 2 cups flour
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- Heat oven to 350 degrees
- Sift flour, salt, and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
- Add sugar, oil and milk. Mix and pour in baking pan.
- Bake until light brown or until inserted fork/toothpick comes out clean.
Note: I always add a bit more sugar, because I like mine just a wee bit sweeter.
