HISTORY OF YANIKEKE
of the Johnnycake,
flatbread or flat fried biscuit. Its recipe dates back to when the Shawnee Indians prepared it with white cornmeal (aka, Shawnee cake) and taught the colonists of New England, among which the most common name was John, how to make the delicious treat. It went on to be the ideal food for long trips (aka, Journey cake). The West Indians introduced it to the Dominican Republic resulting in yaniqueque. PICA EXPRESS captures its Dominican taste with a multicultural mix of a tropical country and a touch of paradise.
