Just like baked bread – bakes are a west Indian comfort food 🙂
Try them with salted fish or as a little side dish.

1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon instant yeast
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup water (more or less to form dough)
1 cup vegetable oil for frying

2. Gradually add water and knead to form smooth dough

3. Place kitchen towel over bowl and let rise for 30 minutes

4. Add oil to frying pan and turn stove to medium low

5. Take pieces of dough and shape into little disks

6. Fry until golden color is achieved all around(Approx. 15 minutes frying for thoroughly cooked bakes)
