Fiona learned how to make these biscuits from her mother and she shares the recipe with us below: Obwenju Biscuit Recipe Ingredients: 1 hand of apple bananas (obwenju) 1 cup of roasted groundnuts 2 eggs 2 tablespoons of sugar Shortcrust pastry: 175 grams. Flour pinch of Salt 85 grams. Blueband/Butter Cold water to mix Method: Peel the bananas, split in half lengthwise, place them on a tray, and put them in the sun to dry.

Add the butter in pieces and rub it into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in enough cold water to draw the mixture together. Roll out the dough on a floured board and line the dish with it. Cut the dry bananas into small pieces, and mix them with the roasted nuts in the beaten eggs and sugar. Pour the mixture onto the pastry and bake for 30 mins. Serve with tea. Leave a comment to let us know if you will be trying this dish.
