A Jamaican flatbread that is very similar to a pancake. Bammy bread is made from grated cassava root that is pressed in a cloth to remove the liquid juice, then mixed with salt, formed into a small round shape, and placed on a baking sheet. The cassava is pressed down to decrease the thickness of the bread and is then baked on both sides, as the pancake-like bread is turned over once while baking. This bread is most often served as an accompaniment to fried fish or other fried foods.
That bammy tasted great with my fried fish.
