Butter loaf has been a Trini staple for more generations than I can count. It certainly was already the de facto sandwich bread when my 80+ year old father was a boy. Stories of neighbours passing fresh loaves over fences to each other is something ﬁrmly in our past now, however the bread remains both as a ﬁxture in local bakeries and in supermarkets as well. The quality of bakery versions varies, however mass produced supermarket versions I have found are often lacking in both texture and ﬂavour. My favourite butter loaves are medium density, slightly chewy, with that distinctive buttery ﬂavour and smell.
Recipes for this bread are hard to come by. Family secrets are closely guarded, and cookbooks have stayed away from sharing their authors own versions. In part this is because the storebought versions are still so easy to come by. Still, if you yearn to try it for yourself I hope you will enjoy my recipe which I share in my ebook “Glam By Request: 30+ Easy Caribbean Recipes” (details below). If you have never had a homemade loaf you may ﬁnd it to be a pleasant departure from the commercial varieties that abound.
