Johnny Cakes (The Bahamas)
photo by GiddyUpGo
- Ready In:
- Mix all the dry ingredients together, then cut in the shortening. Work the mixture with your hands until the grains are about the size of rice.
- Add milk until you get a soft dough (I had to use a bit more than the recipe called for).
- Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.
- Let the dough rest for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a greased 9x9 inch pan. You will have to press it down so it fills in all the corners. Poke the top of the dough a few times with a fork.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. You can tell the cake is done when it starts to turn a little golden around the edges.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a mother of two with another one on the way! I am married to an Englishman and we own a small business in our local area. We live in a very small town called Rough and Ready (yes there really is a place called Rough and Ready!) I am a part-time writer and full time mom. My kids were born 15 months apart and keep me so busy I barely have enough time to cook and no time at all for my other passion, horseback riding. I once had four horses but am down to two; my Arab mare Argo and old Denver. Both of them spend the vast majority of their time standing around in my back yard eating hay. I get to feed them and look at them, but until my kids are all in school (and I stop having more kids) that's about it. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
