Cassava cake


 There are many versions of this classic Philippine dessert on the net, so I've chosen the simplest!

  • 1 tin of coconut milk (400 ml)
  • 2 packets of grated cassava (you may find this in stores which carry Asian products)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter or margarine.           Yummy!!!!
You will also need the following kitchen utensils:
  • A bowl
  • A chef's knife
  • A wire whisk
  • A baking dish
  • A silicone brush
  • A grater

-First, preheat the oven to 350F.
-Crack and beat the eggs and mix all the ingredients, except the melted butter/margarine, in a bowl.
-Next, pour the mixture into a greased baking dish (9x13'') and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.
-Then, remove from the oven and brush melted butter on top of the cake and 
bake it for another 15 to 30 minutes until the edges are golden brown and a knife inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
-Finally, let it cool down and and the cake is ready to be served. Enjoy!

Cassava Cake is soft, chewy and aromatic. If you have a sweet-tooth, this is your recipe.
