Cassava Cake

Cassava Cake is a popular Filipino snack and one of my favorite. This recipe is a little different from the regular Filipino Cassava Cake as it does not uses condensed or evaporated milk. This Cassava Cake recipe is semi-soft, slightly chewy, delicious and a perfect afternoon snack. 

This Cassava Cake is Malay-Chinese inspired and worth a try. It is moist, tender and super delicious. Tapioca flour is added but I don't have it handy so I used rice flour and it worked just well. It gave the Cassava Cake a firmer texture, not too soft and sticky. 

Filipino Cassava Cake is usually made with condensed milk but with this recipe sugar is used instead. The taste reminds me of the Cassava Cake sold by street vendors in Iloilo City.
