Bahamian Guava Duff Recipe


● 2 cups all-purpose flour
● 2 teaspoons baking powder
● 1/2 teaspoon salt
● 1/2 cup sugar
● 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
● 1 egg
● 1/2 cup milk
● 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
● 1 cup guava jelly or jam
● 1/4 cup sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    Add the egg, milk, and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined.
  5. Spread half of the batter in the prepared pan. Spread the guava jelly or jam over the
    batter. Add the remaining batter on top of the jelly.
  6. Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the batter.
  7. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes
    out clean.
  8. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing it and placing it on a
    wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Serve the Guava Duff warm or at room temperature, with a dollop of whipped cream or a
    scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
