Ah bread, that lovely vehicle for butter, eggs, cheese, soup…. I do not miss sandwiches but I do like having a grain free bread on hand for when those runny yolks need mopping up….

I have tried many different recipes and I have posted some on here before including bread rolls and a seed bread which are great but they are not like bread…so the search has continued and I think I have finally found a recipe which works well enough to share!

Now a word of warning, unlike the other bread recipes I have posted, this bread is not low carbohydrate. It does contain some eggs and oil but it is essentially a high carb bread. It is therefore best eaten in moderation and eaten with high fat/protein foods (butter, pate, cheese, eggs etc). Having said that, it is grain free, a whole food (cassava is a tuber/root grown in Africa) and makes a great supplementary carbs for athletes, those with a labour intensive job/lifestyle and growing children.

You can buy Cassava flour in some supermarkets (look in the World Food section) or you can order online (Amazon stock a few options).

Dry Ingredients:

  • 240g of Cassava flour
  • 2 TBS psyllium husk (can be found in most health food stores, Grape Tree and online)
  • 3 tsp baking powder OR sub for
    • 2tsp Cream of tartar
    • 1tsp baking soda
  • pinch of pink salt

Wet ingredients

  • 4 Free range eggs
  • 2 TBS of light Olive oil
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 40ml water

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven 150DegC Fan
  2. Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, add all wet ingredients and mix well
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and combine but do not over mix as you want to keep the air inside.
  5. Transfer mixture to a lined loaf tin and smooth over. It may be quite sticky/difficult to spread. Just bang the container and smooth over the top and it will be fine. Do not over press as it will turn out flat.
  6. Cook for about 35minutes. Turn out and allow to cool slightly.
