During the South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club Christmas theme cooking session, we shared our favourite recipes instead of gifts.
Peche Peche is a recipe shared by Doleres. It is a Filipino dessert. It is similar to a Malaysian dessert called Onde-Onde but using cassava instead of glutinous rice flour.
I made this for a Christmas/New Year gathering.
- 1 package of grated cassava (1 pound)
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pandan extract
- unsweetened shredded coconut for coating (about 100g)

|Combine milk and pandan extract in a microwavable bowl. Add grated cassava and sugar.Stir to combine, make sure there is no lump of cassava.
|Microwave for 5 minutes.
|Stir and microwave for another 5 minutes. The batter will be sticky.
|Place shredded coconut in a plate. I used a 4 cm diameter ice-cream scoop to scoop the cassava mixture into the plate of grated coconut. Roll the cassava ball to coat with the grated coconut.
|You may use other food coloring if you desired. You can substitute the pandan extract with vanilla extract. You can substitute milk with soy milk or even water.
