What is Cassava Flour?
Cassava flour is made from the yucca plant, a starchy root vegetable common to South America and Africa. The flour has a very fine texture, mild flavor and it’s easy to use, making it one of the closest replacements for white flour. Because of the startchiness content, different milling processes by different brands can yield a different product quality/texture; and therefore, affecting the batter. While I often use both almond and coconut flour, neither compare to the amazing results I get when using cassava flour in muffins, biscuits, and pancakes.
Can I substitute All-Purpose Flour with Cassava Flour?
While you can usually swap cassava flour for wheat flour and all-purpose flour using a 1:1 ratio, it is not perfect for every recipe. Cassava flour has a very similar consistency but it is lighter than all-purpose flour. This means baking with it can be tricky. Cassava flour is lighter, yet it absorbs more liquid
Is Cassava Flour Healthy?
If you're watching your weight, cassava is a good option because it's typically lower in calories than other flour options. It's also high in vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant to help relieve stress, support your immune system and can contribute to skin health.
