Cassava & Coconut Bake Recipe by Chef Shaun 🇹🇹 Foodie Nation



Trinbagonian bake is a traditional Caribbean bread known for its rich flavor and soft, slightly dense texture. Made with flour, sugar, baking powder, salt coconut, pumpkin and/or carrots, it's kneaded into a dough, shaped, and baked until golden brown. This local staple is enjoyed with cheese, buljols or by itself.


Yield – One 9” Bake. (DOUBLE RECIPE TO MAKE MINIS)


Ingredients

Cassava & Wheat Flour – 2 ½ cups

Salt – 1 tsp

Baking Powder – 2 tsp

Brown Sugar – 2 tsp

Instant Yeast – 1 ½ tsp

Warm Water – 6 fl. oz.

Unsalted Butter – 3 oz (6 tbsp)

Finely Ground or Grated Coconut – 1/3 cup


Method

In a bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, sugar & yeast.

Make a well in the middle and add water.

Knead to a shaggy texture before adding butter & coconut.

Continue to knead for 3 to 5 minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and allow to rest for 1 to 2 hours.

Roll out your dough into a 9-to-10-inch disc.
