As far as I know only Jamaicans have it in a DUMPLING form. Its a quick bread. Dough Rolled out and fried in oil. Tends to puff out when cooked. In Guyana dumplings mainly go into soup.

RE: the definition. Not all bakes are fried. While fried bake or "fry bake" is common in Trinidad, the dough is also simply baked in an oven or on a tawa/griddle to make "bake". One can also add coconut to make "coconut bake". There is also pot bake...which as you can guess is when the dough is cooked in a pot.
