So, if you missed the announcement, we will be making FRIED BAKES tonight! Being the wishy-washy Caribbean woman and overall picky eater that I am at times, I have never eaten or made fried bake before. Wait, maybe once but it was a while ago.
Anyway, bake sure you stop at the store on the way home tonight and pick up the ingredients below so you can cook along with us. I not to sure how this is gonna go down but I know fun shall be had by all, lol:
INGREDIENT/TOOL LIST (you probably have most of these at home)

- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
