How To Make Cassava Pone Guyanese Style

Cassava Pone Guyanese StyleNot all cassava pone is equal, but one will never know this until one has taken a bite of Guyanese cassava pone. This Guyanese delicacy is made from cassava, a root vegetable.

It is a sweet treat and can neither be classified as a cake nor pudding but somewhat in between — let’s just say it’s pone!

Here is how it is prepared:

Ingredients

2 medium sweet cassava

1 small dried coconut

2 tbsp butter or margarine

6 oz sugar

1/4 tsp spice and black pepper

1/2 tsp essence

1/4 tsp salt

Instructions:

  1. Peel, wash, grate and mix the cassava and coconut together.
  2. Work in the butter with a fork.
  3. Add the other ingredients and enough water to bind stiffly.
  4. Put the mixture into a greased dripping pan, where it should be about 1 inch thick.
  5. Bake in a moderate oven until crisp and brown on top.
  6. Cut into 1½ to 2 inch squares before serving.
