    Chef Kate's Note:

    From "South of the Sahara: Traditional Cooking from the Lands of West Africa" by Elizabeth A. Jackson. This lovely quickbread recipe can easily be doubled. Note: a large fresh papaya will yield about two cups of puree; make sure your papaya is ripe. Also note: papaya is called paw paw in West Africa--and is not related to the North American pawpaw.

      WONDERFUL BREAD, & easy to make, too! Raisins are never optional for me ~ I always would include them, & in this case, the nuts, too! VERY, VERY TASTY, & definitely a keeper! I look forward to making a larger batch & freezing some! Most definitely a keeper! [Made & reviewed while touring Africa on the Zaar World Tour 4]

      Quite pleasant. For some reason, I hadn't ever realized you could make bread with papaya, so this was an eye-opener for me. I usually leave out the raisins and nuts, to get a smooth, firm texture with a mild yet interesting flavor. (We accidentally doubled the butter one time, which still turned out with a nice texture, and a very buttery taste.) The recipe doubles well, and the bread can be frozen, so I usually just make a whole papaya's worth at once.
