Minoo shared a Filipino Cassava Cake recipe for dessert at the South Arm Multicultural Community Kitchen.
This is a sweet and sticky cake. Refrigerate the cake will make it a bit firmer.
This recipe uses frozen grated cassava. The grated cassava is from the root of a woody shrub. Cassava is a major source of carbohydrates. When dried to a starchy, powdery form, it is called tapioca.
Coconut string is the flesh of young coconut. You can buy the above coconut string from stores that carry Filipino products like Great One Supermarket, 99 cent Dollar Store, Wah Shang Supermarket, etc.
- 4 cups grated cassava (from 2 packets of 454g)
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 small can (380g) condensed milk
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup sugar; omit this if using coconut string (Makapuno)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 jar (340g) coconut string, divided
