Bajan Fried Bakes

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!
