Servings: 10 Fry Jack
- 3 Cups of flour
- 3 Teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoons of salt
- 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil or shortening (for the dough)
- 1 Full Cup of Water (sometimes water might need to be adjusted)
- 2 cups of vegetable oil (for the cooking)
Place flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut shortening into flour or, if you’re using oil, add it to the ingredients. Knead the dough, adding little bits of water at time in order to remove all clumps and create a smooth textured dough. Separate the dough in half and let stand for about 15 minutes.
In the meantime, put oil in the frying pan and heat to medium temperature. Next, divide the dough into ten medium-sized balls and flatten them into a circle. Cut each circle in half. Place dough in the frying pan and leave until it turns into a golden brown. Repeat on opposite side. And you’ve got yourself a delicious Fry Jack!
You can have these with eggs, refried, beans, sugar, jam, golden honey, anything your taste buds desire! Buen provecho and have an amazing Belizean breakfast!
