Cassava Cake

Today is such a lovely day as Fiesta Friday is here once again. Angie has been so kind to accommodate everybody at her place at The Novice Garderner. Hmm, I wonder what others are bringing today. 🙂 (I always do!)

As for me, I am bringing a Filipino dessert called Cassava Cake and I hope you’ll love it. Cassava Cake is a cake made from… what else? Cassava! 😀

It was one of those days in which I was craving for something. There are lots of foods bubbling up and I don’t know which of them shall I make? Could I make them all? I think I can. I just need to stay in the kitchen for days hours to make all of them. 😀  Most of the foods I can think of are all Filipino foods. It just came to me that… maybe, I was really craving for this Filipino Beefsteak and that was the main reason why I made it few days back. You think? So after going through all the foods I thought of, I decided to make this cake.

The recipe requires frozen grated cassava, but I was a little ‘energetic’ and decided to grate fresh cassava. Imagine me grating 1 kg of cassava. Whew! That was really something – something that gave me an arm workout. 😀
