Bahamian Johnnycake Recipe

By Contributor ; Updated September 21, 2017

This isn't a cornbread but more like a big soft tea biscuit. It has a sweet taste and is a great accompaniment for any Carribean style meal.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in shortening until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.

Add milk while stirring with a fork to make a soft dough. Roll into a ball.

Knead the dough several times until smooth on a lightly floured surface. Roll out into 9-inch (23cm) circle. Place in a greased 9 inch (1.5L) round cake pan.

Bake in 425F (220C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Cur into wedges and serve warm.
