This is my family recipe for Johnny Bread. My mother has been making this for as long as I can remember. No Bermudian cook is without her own recipe for Johnny Bread!
Cut margarine into dry ingredients until crumbly.
Mix the milk and egg together and slowly add to the crumb mixture. Combine thoroughly and knead on a floured board until well incorporated and not too sticky.
Break off pieces about the size of a tennis ball. Flatten and fry in shallow oil (about 1/2 an inch) over a medium flame until golden. Repeat on other side.
Drain on paper towels and serve with butter and/or cheese.
(Frying this can be a little tricky. You don't want the bread to be too flat because you won't be able to split and butter them properly. Too thick, and they'll be gummy on the inside.
I guess an easier method would be to roll out the dough and cut with a large circle cutter. )
