Cassava bread is one of the traditional African breads. My friend, Natalie loves to bake and she is a lover of blue foods and cassava. I asked her to share her favourite Sweet Cassava Bread with Coconut and Raisins with me. I have decided to share it with you, so enjoy.
Sweet Cassava Bread with Coconut and Raisins
3/4 cup margarine
2 cup sugar
2 cup frozen grated cassava
1 cup frozen grated coconut
1 cup All-purpose flour (sifted)
1 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 11×8 inch pan or a loaf pan.
Defrost your cassava and coconut at room temperature or use a microwave oven. Transfer margarine, eggs, and sugar to mixing bowl. Mix on low for one minute. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl. Mix on high for two more minutes, scraping bowl frequently. Pour into greased pan. Bake 40-45 minutes. Bread is ready when it leaves the sides of the pan and a wooden toothpick stuck in the centre comes out clean. Serve warm for breakfast with a fruit juice.
