    I remember being in Jamaica with my one of best friends for a quick break. His wife had gone to the local grocery in Ocho Rios to get us stuff to prepare for dinner at our condo that night. She came back and with a joyous shout, she screamed… “I got you your fave.. bun and cheese”. My guy could not control himself.. suffice to say he didn’t share any either. As a kid growing up in the area, he mentioned that his grandma would make this for him and it’s been his fave since then.

    You’ll Need…

    3/4 cup sugar (golden brown is preferred)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 tablespoon molasses
    1 tablespoon browning
    2 tablespoon honey
    1 3/4 cups Guinness (stout)
    1 cup raisins
    1 cup mixed fruit (peel)
    3/4 cherries (chopped)
    4 tablespoon butter (melted)
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 egg (beaten)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 teaspoon allspice
    1/4 teaspoon ginger (powder)

    Please note that this is my version of this classic Jamaican recipe.

    In a saucepan add the Guinness, vanilla, molasses, browning, honey, raisins, cherries, sugar and mixed fruit. Place on a medium flame, stir well and as soon as you start seeing bubbles on the edges turn off the stove and set aside to cool.
