I had something like this in Barbados some years ago which was delicious. I don’t think it’s a native Bajan recipe, but is more likely something that has made its way over from the States. Serve this extremely rich pie with a few dressed green salad leaves. It really doesn’t need anything else.


  • 200-250 g ready-made short-crust pastry
  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • Butter, for greasing
  • 300


Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.

Roll out the pastry on a floured table to about 2mm thick. Lightly grease a 25 x 3cm deep loose-bottomed flan tin, line it with the pastry and trim the edges. Line with foil or greaseproof paper, fill with a layer of baking beans and
