    GiddyUpGo's Note:

    This recipe is from week eleven of my food blog, Travel by Stove. I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Antigua and Barbuda is my eleventh stop. I found this recipe to be a little tricky to pull off because of the way the cakes are fried, but alternatively you can just cook them like refried beans and top them with the salsa and yogurt, which is what really makes the dish.
