Vegan Bajan Cassava Pone

Vegan Bajan Cassava Pone

Bajan recipes are so good, but sometimes can be loaded with fat and dairy, but the great thing about the traditional Bajan recipes, they are easy to transform into vegan options. This cassava pone is no different as it tastes pretty close to the one my mom made when I was growing up! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Hi there.
    I was born in Barbados. Tried your recipe and it came out awsome. I put less sugar. Doubled the recipe but but 2 cups coconut milk and it still was delicious. Didn’t have any problems baking. EXCEPT it took longer to bake and the delicious smell of it baking made me inpatient lol.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful recipe.
