Here is a recipe that I use almost every week to make homemade bread. Try it at home, and take photo’s, and lastly comment below and let me know how it went. Diphaphata (Dee-pa-pat-ta) is very popular in Botswana because it tastes great. In this recipe we are baking the bread, but usually the bread is made in a caste iron pan using no oil. Happy cooking 😀-Finda
