Cassava Cake Recipe for US-based Filipinos

My friend from the USA sent me this recipe on how she makes cassava cake. When I saw that she used frozen cassava, I was surprised. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to a Filipino grocery in the states. I am sure a lot of Filipinos can still come up with our native delicacies as long as the Filipino stores carry these ingredients. So here is her recipe:

2 packs frozen cassava

2 packs frozen buko

2 eggs

2 cups sugar 2 cans (16 0z) coconut milk

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/4 cup melted butter


1. Mix them together and bake it in a gressed pan/pyrex for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

2. Remove the pyrex after an hour so you can put the topping.(see below)

1 can condensed milk
1 bottle of string macapuno.

Mix together and put on top of cassava, then bake again until topping is brown. Maybe 30 or 45 mins.

    your recipe is a midway between theconsistency of pitsi pitsi and a cassava cake dessert. Sure it will taste good but I think it is too sweet if you use ready made macapuno an condensed milk. I recommend using condensed milk and cream of coconut milk or wash some of the sugar from the bottled macapuno and drai well then resume your recipe. I happen to love cassava cakes and bake them the pampango way. thanks.

    thank u so much for the recipe. it’s my first time to bake, at last i’ve overcomed my fear of the oven ūüôā came out perfect! i just had to add more time than instructed after i put the topping coz it didnt turn brown right away… maybe bcoz i didnt put much condensed milk coz i’m not a sweet tooth. @lorna i did the same w the macapuno i rinsed and drained just as i do when i prepare my buko-pandan. thanks all!
