Recipe Creation by our very own Frank Louw, Sasakwa Chef ~
Something that we always have in abundance in Tanzania is a supply of delicious tropical fruit. Here is one of my all-time favourite dessert recipes: Mango Cobbler
1 cup cashews nuts, roughly chopped
1 cup flour
½ cup butter or margarine
½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Blend these ingredients in a food processor until they resemble bread crumbs. Spray a non stick pie dish and lightly push your crumble mix into the dish, ensuring that it covers the base and the sides. Bake at 160 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes. Slice enough mangos to fill the pie case. Top off the pie case with the remaining dough mix. Bake for a further 15 minutes
This Mango Cobbler is destined to tantalise your taste buds and the warm sweet juices will leave you dreaming about holidays spent relaxing under the African sun
