Cassava cake is a beloved dessert in many parts of the world, particularly in Southeast Asia and South America. It is made from grated cassava (also known as yuca or manioc), coconut milk, eggs, and sugar, and has a dense and chewy texture with a sweet and slightly nutty flavor. In this article, we’ll be sharing our ultimate cassava cake recipe – the one that we believe is the best you’ll ever taste.
The first step in making cassava cake is to prepare the cassava. You can either buy pre-grated cassava or grate it yourself using a food processor or a box grater. If you’re using fresh cassava, make sure to peel it first and remove any woody parts. Then, grate the cassava using the fine side of the grater.
Once the cassava is grated, place it in a cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. The drier the cassava, the better the cake will turn out.
Now that the cassava is prepared, it’s time to mix the batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, condensed milk, eggs, melted butter, and sugar until well combined. Add the grated cheddar cheese and mix until evenly distributed.
In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Finally, fold in the grated cassava until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly.
Bake the cassava cake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely before slicing and serving. The cake will firm up as it cools, so be patient before slicing.
Cassava cake can be served warm or chilled, and can be enjoyed on its own or with a variety of toppings. Here are some serving suggestions to try:
Cassava cake can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. To freeze cassava cake, let it cool completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in a freezer-safe container. It will keep in the freezer for up to two months.
To reheat cassava cake, you can either microwave it for 30-60 seconds, or bake it in a preheated oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes, until heated through.
Cassava cake has a long and fascinating history, with variations of the dessert being enjoyed in countries all over the world. The cake is thought to have originated in the Philippines, where it is often served during special occasions and celebrations. Cassava cake is also popular in other Southeast Asian countries, as well as in Latin America and Africa.
Cassava, also known as yuca, is a starchy root vegetable that is native to South America. It was brought to other parts of the world by Spanish and Portuguese colonizers in the 16th century. Cassava is a versatile crop that can be used to make a variety of dishes, from savory to sweet. In its sweet form, cassava is often used to make cakes, puddings, and other desserts.
While cassava cake is undoubtedly a delicious treat, it also has some nutritional benefits that are worth noting. Cassava is a good source of carbohydrates, fiber, and some essential vitamins and minerals. It is also gluten-free, making it a great choice for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.
However, it’s important to note that cassava is also high in calories and carbohydrates, so it should be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. If you’re looking to make a healthier version of cassava cake, you could try reducing the amount of sugar or using alternative sweeteners like honey or maple syrup.
