Cassava Cake Recipe

Cassava cake is one of the Filipino delicacies or “kakanin”, it can be soft and chewy (that’s what I like) or firm.

It is easy to make and the ingredients are easy to find especially if you have cassava planted in your garden. I love how the delicious taste of the grated cassava (kamoteng kahoy) blends with coconut milk, egg, butter and milk mixture.

  1. Hello, I reside in Toronto and I tried looking for the coconut cream and can’t seem to find any. Can I substitute with coconut milk instead?
