The sweet cakey dough is baked to a golden or dark brown crustiness. Photo by Jeffrey Marshall We’re received one yummy Bulla recipe to date from — an American — Jennifer Mullings, who discover this crusty treat when she moved to Jamaica years ago. Get her recipe in the Dec--March 2011 issue. The not so simple quest for a good ol’ fashioned Bulla We thought our quest for good old-fashioned bulla recipes was simple enough. Responding to the longing of Vancouver, Canada, reader Barbara Binns (August - November 2010) for an ol’ time Bulla oozing with dark molasses and perked up with fresh ginger, we put out the call. But, lo and behold, we’ve come to realize that folks hold their bulla recipes close. Oh, we’ve been titillated by Bulla stories, but then told that they remain closely guarded family secrets. So we’re still looking. E-mail us @ [email protected] Your Passport to Caribbean Eating Around the World. For Delicious Discoveries and Scrumptious Memories.

Grandma Actually, she was my great grandmother, and back in St. Mary, Jamaica, we called her Sister Wadi. I remember that she was tall and proud and taught me how to cook. The food I serve at my restaurant may have a modern twist – with items like the Bob Marley Pizza Bowl – but every bite is flavoured with memories of Sister Wadi. - Chef Bounty, Jamaican Pizza Jerk restaurant, Vancouver, Canada Jamaican Pizza Jerk Tel: 604.876.3343 Fax: 604.876.3374 e-mail: [email protected] 2707 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Variations: Instead of vanilla cookie wafers, try crushed shortbread cookies, graham cracker crumbs, crushed meringues, ginger cookies or chocolate wafers. Substitute a cup of pecans or desiccated coconut for the walnuts or go half pecans, half shredded coconut. Or try ¾ cup confectioner’s sugar and ¼ cup cocoa Store in airtight container or freeze for up to a month. Bring to room temperature before serving. Rum Balls and cake from Susie’s Bakery and Coffee Bar, Southdale Plaza, Kingston Rum balls are the perfect indulgence and they are great for holiday parties.

QUiCKtips - For maximum flavour, toast pecans. - To better control the stickiness of the batter, chill for about 30 minutes and lightly butter the palms of my hands before forming balls. - Roll balls in white sugar, cocoa powder or chopped nuts.
