News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri.  June 28, 2019:  This week we take you on a culinary tour to Belize where we spotlight on one of the Belizean delicacies – fried jacks.  Fry jacks are deep fried dough pieces that can be shaped in squares, circles or triangles. They are like salt bakes in Guyana and similar to bake in Trinidad or Johnny cake in Antigua. They are usually served at breakfast with refried beans, eggs, cheese, bacon or ham and fresh fruits. Here’s what you will need to make it.


3 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 ½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

1 ½ cup water

Vegetable oil for frying


Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

Add shortening into a flour mix. Add water, a little at a time, to make a soft, but not sticky dough.

Divide dough into two rounds.

Let rest for 15 to 20 minutes.

Lightly flour countertop. 

Roll dough out to about 10 to 12 inches round.

Cut lengthwise into 2 to 3-inch strips and then crosswise to desired size.

Make sure the oil is very hot for fluffy jacks.

Fry on each side until golden brown.

Drain off excess oil on paper towel and serve with eggs, bacon etc.

Bon Appetite.
