One of the typical Nigerian breakfasts made with yam, named Yamarita. A simple dish of blanched yam dipped into an egg mixture then coated with flour and fried until crispy. Re-creating a potato version takes this easy meal to another level. Served with an omelette and a little veg of your liking on the side.

For my take on an African inspired dessert, try this Peanut custard tart made using Uwa Earth peanut butter, a whole foods line out of Nigeria.
Using an organic or unrefined peanut butter, maintains the rich flavour of the peanuts and transforming this into a peanut custard is even more decadent.
It may seem time consuming to prepare, but it’s well worth it in the end. It’s also an impressive dessert for summer entertaining too.
Prepare the Tart Base
You’ll need: –
A pinch of salt
Ice cold water
- Place flour and salt in bowl
- Mix together sparingly aerating the flour in the process
- Pinch butter into flour until you have coarse loose crumbs
- Add some water to bind the dough together. Ensure the dough is not runny
- Roll out the dough and cut out in a circle
- Place in an oiled tart tin
- To prevent dough from rising, place baking sheet on dough and pour pastry beans
- Bake for 10mins at 180° until it turns golden brown
Prepare Peanut Butter Custard
You’ll need: –
1tbsp Peanut butter
4 Egg yolks
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
- Place peanut butter in a bowl
- Whisk until it’s light, then add honey and condensed milk
- Mix until you have a paste, then set aside
- Place egg yolk in a bowl, pour in sugar, then whisk until it’s light and fluffy (or until the color changes to a lighter shade)
- Pour milk in a pan and heat up to simmer
- Pour in the egg yolk, mix and and stir until you have a paste. Do not boil
- Stir in peanut butter mix and serve
You’ll need: –
Peanut butter custard
- Pour 1tbsp of peanut butter custard in tart base and spread over the base
- Slice banana and place over the custard
- Sprinkle brown sugar over bananas
- Using a blow torch, caramelise sugar on bananas then serve. In the absence of a blow torch, place in a hot oven to caramelise for a few minutes
This layered dessert of peanut custard, a dollop of strawberry jam, banana slices is my take on a PB & J sandwich but a little more decadent. Add a scoop of ice cream which is optional but do try this because as the ice cream melts it lovingly combines all the flavours just a little more.
What you need
