In the Philippines, Cassava means “kamoteng kahoy“.
A Popular Dessert
Cassava cake is one of my favorite desserts. Sometimes, I eat it for snacks and I’m good to go. Cassava is easy to find in the Philippines and it is very affordable. So, making a Cassava cake is not only delicious but also budget-friendly. I’ve listed down the ingredients and the procedure or operating steps on how to make a cassava cake. Hope you will love it.
Just a little bit of a warning: Since Cassava is rich in starch, you might want to watch the quantity that you eat. Otherwise, you are good.
Here’s the recipe to make a Cassava Cake:
1 kilo Cassava root, grated
1 can Coconut Cream
1 can Coconut Milk (You can also use the fresh coconut milk)
3 Eggs, beaten
1 cup whole milk
stick or 1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup grated Cheese (optional)
1 can Condensed Milk
1/3 cup Coconut Cream
3 Egg yolks
1/2 cup grated Cheese
1. Mix all of the ingredients together except the ingredients for the toppings.
2. Pre-heat the oven until it reaches 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.
3. Put the mixture into the desired baking pan and bake. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the top most portion of the cake is already almost golden. Don’t over-bake.
4. When almost done, add the topping to the cake. Bake the cake for 10 to 15 more minutes.
5. When the cheese is also more or less golden, take the cake out from the oven and let it cool down.
