Peche Peche

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 of milk/coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar (or less depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon pandan extract
  • unsweetened shredded coconut for coating (about 100g)
