Bake is a popular breakfast item in Guyana.  It requires very few ingredients and is very easy to whip up.  There are many types of bake but this is my favorite.  It puffs up when its cooked to form a pocket on the inside and is soft and chewy but crispy on the outside.

Bake (Float)

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/3 cup sugar

4 tbsp butter

pinch of salt

about 1 cup water*

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a bowl.  With  a fork, or using your hand(quick method) rub butter into flour mixture.  Add water to make a firm dough, but not stiff.  Dough should be easy to roll.   Let dough sit, covered for at least half an hour.  Roll dough to about 1/2 inch in thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter.   Heat about 3 inches of oil on a medium fire.  Fry dough until golden brown, flipping once.   Best when served hot.
