• 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Gradually add water to the dry ingredients, mixing well until a smooth dough forms. Knead the dough for a few minutes until it becomes elastic.
  3. Divide the dough into small balls, about the size of a golf ball. Cover the dough balls with a damp cloth and let them rest for 10-15 minutes.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each dough ball into a thin circle or rectangle shape.
  5. In a deep pan or skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Make sure there is enough oil to submerge the fry jacks.
  6. Carefully place the rolled-out dough into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on each side, turning once. This should take about 1-2 minutes per side.
  7. Remove the fry jacks from the oil and place them on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  8. Serve the fry jacks warm with your choice of toppings, such as honey, jam, or savory fillings like beans and cheese.

Note: Fry jacks are a popular breakfast item in Belize and can be enjoyed in various ways, both sweet and savory.
