Bottom-line is, this portion of Liberian Tea Bread is good for one person especially if you are the only vegan or vegetarian person in your household. Our tea bread lasts over one week without refrigeration; simply put it in a container and leave it out on the counter. Honestly, I do not like to refrigerate baked goods because there is no heavy animal product in it so I do not see the need to: I used real butter (not sponsored) because food is not a religion to me and it is egg-free thanks to my easy flax-binder recipe.

Recommended Humble Vege Recipes
- 1.5 cup whole wheat flour
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 2 TBSP Sugar or honey or agave or maple syrup
- salt 1/8tsp ( note this is less than 1/4tsp)
- 1/4tsp Nut Meg
- Softened Butter 1/4cup (real butter)
- 2 TBSP Flaxseed
- 0.75 cup (less than 1 cup) Plant milk
- half Tsp Vanilla extract
- Sift out the flour, sugar, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. This helps to eliminate and prevent lumps that would weigh down the batter.
- To this, add salt and nutmeg then mix it very well with a fork.
- Add refrigerated cold or softened butter and rub it in the mixture using your fingertips. Continue until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.
- In a separate bowl, pour in Plant milk, vanilla extract, and flaxseed liquid. Beat the mixture with a fork to get a nice even color.
- Add the beat liquid to the flour mixture little by little while stirring gently with a spoon. Do not mix it completely.
- Put the batter in a greased baking pan and even it out by shaking it gently.
- Bake for 30 minutes at 350D.
- Serve it hot
- Best to let the butter be refrigerated instead of room temperature.
- This is small portion baking, it is best for one person. Make sure the bread will not fully brown especially at the top.
- If you cut through and the knife has wet batter on it or is a bit gummy, then the bread might need more time in the oven. 5 mins or so.
