Since I’ve received tons of request for me to prepare this recipe, here it is. Cassava cake is one delicious local dessert recipe made from cassava or kamoteng kahoy. It may require some work when grating but it should be worth it. A hot cup of coffee with a slice of cassava cake in a rainy afternoon will seal the deal.

1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup Melted Butter
1 cup Grated Cheese

Note from Delish:

I know why I received a lot of recipe requests for cassava cake. I myself would say no to this local popular kakanin in the country. Especially in the Visayas where kamoteng kahoy thrives abudantly.

Some people might add macapuno string or young coconut meat, it’s up to you. But I want it cheesy.

Order Coconut Milk from Amazon:
