4 Persons

For the Bammy:
  • 2 cups cassava flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


1) In a bowl, combine the cassava flour and salt.

2) In a separate bowl, mix together the water, coconut milk, melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract.

3) Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring to form a smooth batter. The consistency should be similar to pancake batter.

4) Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.

5) Grease the skillet with a small amount of oil or butter.

6) Pour a ladleful of the batter onto the skillet to form a round flatbread, about 6 inches in diameter.

7) Cook the Bammy for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

8) Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
