The Chadian steamed honey cassava bun recipe has as many variations as to the fillings and the preparations. Our recipe offers a tasty filling of sweet honey to compliment the delicate soft steamed buns.

Prep time: Cook time: Total time:

Ingredients
2 cups cassava flour
½ cup water
¼ cup honey
½ teaspoon salt
Honey for drizzling

Directions
Mix together cassava flour, water, and salt. Knead until dough is formed then divide into 10 equal balls. Using your thumb make a deep indication in the center of each ball, fill with honey, and smooth the dough back over the filling. Place squares of parchment paper under each ball so the dough does not stick to the steamer, and steam in a bamboo steamer for 25 minutes. Drizzle with honey and serve warm as a snack, appetizer, or with a meal.
