14 Jul Bajan Fried Bakes
Traditional fried Bajan bakes typically have three main ingredients – flour, sugar and water. Despite the simple ingredients, they are little pieces of deliciousness! Other ingredients can also be added to make your taste buds dance more and I love to add a little spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) to give it more flavor!

Bajan Fried Bakes
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 2 tbsp vegan butter softened
- 3/4 cup warm water
- coconut oil for frying
In large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Add vegan 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.
