Breakfast in Jamaica

This morning I made Johnnycakes with my grandfather.
The recipe is simply:
baking powder
But to get the specific quantities is a bit of a guessing game, aha.
After rolling the dough,
fry the cakes in a shallow pan of vegetable oil.
 Like you do with pancakes, you have to learn to cook this through experience and gauge the time to turn them over.
Golden brown! Ready to eat!
Sorry my recipe wasn't too complete but I hope you liked the pictures. has a good recipe which includes butter.

We also had ackee and saltfish for breakfast.
Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica.
And Ackee and Saltfish is the national dish.
This fruit has a strange texture that could be compared to scrambled eggs.
Grandma has an ackee tree in her backyard

Ackee turn red when they are ripe
Have a great day, eat well!
