Injera (Ethiopian Teff Bread)

Sharing is caring!

A naturally fermented, spongy, gluten-free flatbread from Ethiopia is made from teff flour and water, using wild yeast to ferment over a couple of days. It is then cooked like a crepe and turned into a flavorful, tangy bread to serve with your favorite Ethiopian food. The fermentation process can take up to 2 or 3 days, depending on your climate. Injera is typically served with vegetables and/or meat on top where the bread is actually an eating utensil.

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.
