This calendar week I get got but been pushing out my all fourth dimension favourite comfort foods that I lived on growing up. I experience though that my listing of “all fourth dimension favorites” is long. Lol. But I approximate that is what happens when you lot are surrounded past times practiced food.
This roast bake is definitely a favourite together with a pop particular inwards West Indian food. This flatbread, commonly called roast bake, or bakes, is a kokosnoot “bread” you lot should sure enough try.
The Caribbean Area has thence much food. The to a greater extent than I brand things from Trinidad together with Tobago together with firm into the other islands I realise how many dissimilar foods (some nosotros get got inwards mutual together with but about that are unique to each island) nosotros create.
Roast bake though seems to live a Trini thing. It’s the cousin of fried bake together with fried dumpling (Jamaican).
What makes this fifty-fifty to a greater extent than special is the role of fresh kokosnoot husk AND the milk inwards the mixture. The season actually takes it to but about other level. I hateful you lot are gratuitous to role canned milk together with shop bought kokosnoot husk but I tin ship away tell you lot it cannot compare.
Have you lot e’er made your ain kokosnoot milk from scratch? If non it’s pretty slow if you lot desire to check it out. Though it takes a trivial work, fresh kokosnoot milk is thence much ameliorate than those canned ones. And I am inwards no agency knocking those canned kokosnoot milk, my pantry is ordinarily stocked amongst a twosome tins at a time.
This has no raising fourth dimension to it. Which is practiced since I get got no patience. I ordinarily am impatient to allow things ascent together with goal upwardly amongst but about heavy bread. I do larn out this to sit down for a trivial subsequently mixing but thence that it tin ship away concur better.
And when you lot get got a prissy pasty dough, together with then nosotros are ready to roast inwards the oven.
We ordinarily but role a canvas pan but I know people role large pots thence that they larn a prissy circular shape. Or if you lot are skilled plenty to create an fifty-fifty roundness amongst a rolling pin.
And if you lot are, you lot necessitate to come upwardly to my solid together with exhibit me how.
Then nosotros but larn out this bad man child to bake together with get got but about color.
At this time, you lot tin ship away become ahead together with laid upwardly what you lot are going to swallow this with.
Fried fish is a real mutual accompaniment. My brown stew fish would live great, together with it has gravy to dip inwards too. Another plus.
But but about regular cheese together with butter volition also do the trick. Or saltfish!!
I beloved eating roast bake fresh out the oven. Warm amongst a trivial kokosnoot flavor. Not likewise sweet, but non savory.
Great for breakfast, or an afternoon snack.
The dough stays good too. It’s non uncommon to mix the dough together with then freeze it till ready to use. Just larn it to room temp together with whorl together with bake.
And if you lot get got leftovers together with lay it inwards the fridge, but pop it into your oven for a trivial together with it’s every bit practiced every bit new.
Ahh kokosnoot bake.. I beloved you!!
