Bahama Vacation Johnny Cake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Not So Good Cook

On a recent vacation to the Bahamas with my daughter, we were served Johnny Cake with dinner instead of the usual bread or rolls. It's light, slightly sweet, and was served warm. We've made it for breakfast and there's never any left. It's great with butter or jam.

Light, sweet, and so easy to make! (Aside from the condensed milk being so damned sticky. XD) Texture reminds me of malai cake. I did cook it for a bit longer than stated, though, because it didn't really turn golden brown, more of a mellow yellow.
