    A fragrant bread/loaf cake. Can be eaten straight away but for best flavour, store overnight before serving. You can choose the amount of sugar in this cake depending on your taste.

    In the past when I have made vegetarian burritos for meat-eaters, they've said that they "miss the meat"... At this point, I used to ask them why they didn't just marry meat if they loved it so much... but now I follow this recipe instead. And all is well. I actually enjoy this recipe with some extra chilli (besides what is in the taco sauce). Also, you can use sweet potato or kumara.
