from the editor

THE TROPICS AWAIT… This issue embraces the restorative power of tropical tastes, from a creamy, dreamy pie roundup to a collection of recipes highlighting one of the greatest ingredients to come from these warmer climes: vanilla. Our cover star, the Guava Jam Cake (page 17), is inspired by Bahamian resident Angelika Bacchus’s love for the local guava duff, a jammy steamed pudding that always gets drowned in a rich butter rum sauce. Then there are the blondies, an epic bake-your-own-adventure feature (page 67) that offers three perfect base recipes and six creative variations. Plus, we’re diving into the history of the Hawaiian bun (page 107), that addictive bread roll that’s always a welcome sight at the dinner table. And, yes, there’s plenty of rum cake—five recipes, to be exact.…

FAVORITE TROPICAL FRUIT TO BAKE WITH? “Bermuda bananas are the best I’ve ever had because they’re sweeter than the rest. I love making banana bread with them.” Lara D. Smith Filmmaker Pembroke, Bermuda “Guava! It’s super fragrant but has a mild flavor—kind of like a cross between strawberry and pear. I use it in cakes, curds, and pastry cream!” Alana Kysar Cookbook author Los Angeles, California “I love loquats. During the winter, they’re everywhere in Bermuda. I add some to my rum cake after soaking them in black rum and Gosling’s Bermuda Gold Liqueur.” Rohan Shastri Content Specialist, Bermuda Tourism Authority Sandys Parish, Bermuda GO-TO RUM COCKTAIL? “Nothing beats a classic daiquiri. It’s refreshing in that it has no frills, and it’s equally tart and sweet—just like I aspire…

RECIPE BINDER “Everyone should have a collection of heirloom recipes that are personal to you. I have a recipe binder my mother put together for me of all the things we’d make together growing up. The cake and cream cheese frosting recipes we use at Flour Shop are actually my mother’s that she put in the binder. Those recipes are so meaningful to me.” THE POWER OF SPRINKLES (Abrams, 2019) by Amirah Kassem “No matter the occasion, when you’re taking a cake somewhere, you want to know it’s your best. My cake book makes sure of that. It helps you master an essential cake recipe and teaches you how to decorate it in 28 different ways. And if you make a mistake, cover it in sprinkles!”Available at powerofsprinkles.com.…

THE REDO GUAVA JAM CAKE Makes 1 (8-inch) cake This pillowy cake is our homage to the Bahamian guava duff.

macanese pastry magic

(PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY THE BAKERY AT FAT RICE) There’s a fragile millisecond of resistance when you bite into The Bakery at Fat Rice’s pastel de nata (egg custard tart) and your teeth meet the brûléed top. It dissipates instantly as you descend through creamy, lightly sweet egg custard before tearing into the flaky, croissant-like shell. Sort of Macanese by way of Portugal, it’s a pastry greater than the sum of its parts—at once dead simple and elusive with baking alchemy. You’ll wonder how the team consistently achieves this result in a single bake.“It was a seven- or eight-year process,” says Abe Conlon, chef and co-owner with Adrienne Lo of the Chicago pastry shop attached to Fat Rice, their relentlessly thronged Macanese restaurant. They first made egg custard tarts while hosting X-marx,…
