Johnny Cakes are like dense biscuits with a mild coconut flavor. In Belize they are often enjoyed in the morning with a slice of melted cheese, eggs, and sausage. They are also wonderful served under Stew Chicken where they wick up the delicious broth.

2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut milk
1. Mix flour salt and baking powder together.
2. Add butter and milk. Mix to combine. Knead briefly to bring dough together.
3. Divide into 8 portions. Shape into balls and flatten into discs. Pardon mine looking so “homemade”… I was in a hurry. Ava wanted to play! They still baked up fine

5. Brush with milk or butter and bake for 15 minutes.
