Bakes (fried dough) is something each state in the region has in common, and though they may look similar, each one is different. The bakes featured in this series are the traditional ole-time Bajan bakes made with flour, sugar and water. I added a bit of cinnamon for flavour. No leavening agent is added to these bakes. There is a modern version of these Bajan Bakes as explained by the late renowned Bajan writer and academic, Austin Clarke. A pat of butter, milk and baking powder lighten these bakes.
