Chapati (East African Bread)

Sharing is caring!

Adopted from Indian cuisine, African bread known as chapati has been a part of East African cuisine for centuries. The East African recipe is slightly different from its Indian counterpart. This bread accompanies African soups and stews well. Preparation is minimal, making this a great choice for cooks in a pinch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups mango – peeled, seeded, and cubed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Beat eggs, cream, and butter until smooth in another large bowl. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until batter is moistened. Fold mango into batter until just combined. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
