Cassava Cake

Cassava Cake is a classic Filipino dessert made from grated cassava or manioc, a woody shrub where the starch that is used to make tapioca are derived. Being a popular dessert, different recipe versions are available for Cassava Cake.

Add the coconut milk in the mixing bowl where the mixed ingredients are. Mix again.

Grease the baking tray then pour-in the batter (ingredients that has just been mixed)

Pre -heat oven for 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes then put-in the baking tray with batter and bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Meanwhile prepare the batter by combining the sugar and flour and put-in the heated saucepan.

Pour-in the condensed milk then mix thoroughly.

Add the cheese while stirring constantly.

Pour the coconut milk and stir constantly for 10 minutes

Pour the topping over the Cassava Cake (baked batter) and spread evenly.

Separate the yolk from the egg white of the remaining egg (we’ll be needing the egg white)
