      The amount of water is missing. I used about 1 1/4. Reduce the sugar in the sauce to about 3/4. Add more liquor to taste. This recipe is good guide for a tasty Bahamian dessert. Take it from a Bahamian!!

      Guava was unavailable, but this cooks up nicely with canned pre-sliced mango, as well (as long as you mash it up a bit). I agree with Chef's steps, but got mixed up following them: the water goes in with the dough, and the sugar is a separate bit. I found that the liquor as called for, augmented with a little vanilla, was a perfect touch. I did the recipe with half-values for everything and it cooked up perfectly. I would, however, maybe use three egg whites instead of two for the sauce. Just as I remembered it from my trip to Nassau.

      Yes, Guava Duff is the best dessert that I ever had.I lived in the Bahamas for several years<br/>and grew Guavas in the back yard. They used to drop on the ground and get very yellow.That was the best of all. The Duff now that is special. You have to know how to make it and the Bahamians sure do above anyone else.What a dessert.It will make your heart proud.However it is very fattening so watch out.
