I just made one today. It was ao dry. Well is there a way to fix my cake? I used a different recipe. But i was so sad with the result. Is there anyway to make it gooey or sticky or like that?

ilonacecilia (author)2012-11-22

The cake is so good!

conversegirl (author)2010-01-05

Shadow Dragon (author)2008-04-10

I'm sorry, but that does not look good to me

noelanif (author)Shadow Dragon2008-04-22

Don't knock it until you try it, it is really a delicious cake.

Kopolis777 (author)noelanif2008-04-23

What does the cake taste like? it looks good, but cheese? What's the cheese for?

ponchit (author)Kopolis7772009-04-23

well you do eat cheese cake don't you?

noelanif (author)Kopolis7772008-04-24

the texture of the cake is not what you are thinking of in the sense that the cake is not crumbly it is more sticky, gooey, and yummy. The cheese is just an added touch of flavor to offset the sweet taste of the cake. Try it, you will like it.

I agree.

xnipher (author)Shadow Dragon2008-04-10

Well, that's ok... thanks for the comment.. :)

awoodcarver (author)xnipher2008-04-12

Looks good , I have eaten it with the and without the cheese ..........clears the taste of dinardaraan (spelling?) and balut out of the mouth and I do like both of those

Notbob (author)2008-04-10

What does cassava taste like? sweet, salty, coconut like?

ponchit (author)Notbob2009-04-23

I think cassava is also the same us manioc and yucca root

dmlandrum (author)Notbob2008-04-10

Processed cassava root is commonly ground up and dried into small pellets. We call this tapioca here in the States.

I make cassava cake. I buy Goya's frozen cassava at an international market. Since its still whole, I defrost it, then put it in the food processor. In Hispanic grocery stores, its also known as "yucca".

Notbob (author)dmlandrum2008-04-12

I wonder if it is called the same here in Cannada. probably....

xnipher (author)Notbob2008-04-10

if you're asking what does this taste like? well., its some what milky and creamy if you eat this

trishsbs (author)2008-09-01

Oh i forgot to mention :) put it in the fridge and try it cold the next day - makes a perfect "walk out the door snack".

trishsbs (author)2008-09-01

I wanted to try a new dessert and found this one on the net - tried it out on my partner and 5 year daughter and now frozen casava is a must on the Groceries list:). Try it!! Promise you won't be disappointed:)

SpaceDog777 (author)2008-07-28

Putting things in food that don't look like they should be there can be good. For instance my burito's use a couple of blocks of cooking chocolate.

estab (author)2008-04-22

dont be so hard on yourself :)

inquisitive (author)2008-04-20

Actually it is delicious-do not let the cheese stop you-just like some people have cheddar cheese with their apple pie, it just adds a dimension to the sweetness. So don't knock it until you try it, my Mom is Filipina and although I have been raised in the USA I would put this cake against other cakes any day! Do try to add more measurements of the cassava and possible substitutes for people though to make it easier for others to attempt.

dmlandrum (author)2008-04-11

Any chance you can tell us how much cassava is in a package of frozen cassava? Because tapioca is cassava in a dried form, it would help those of us with access to tapioca and not to straight cassava. Whether that substitution can be made or not is another story. I guess I'll find out.

xnipher (author)dmlandrum2008-04-12

I dunno... But at least you can experiment just a little piece.....

dmlandrum (author)xnipher2008-04-12

Well, yeah, I'm no stranger to experimenting. I was just hoping I could find out how many ounces of cassava comes in a package. That way, I have a place to start with my experiment.

loftladder (author)2008-04-11

Its a great instructable xnipher. Ignore Jake Tobaks comment. Step 1 is fine and clear. Do we really want step 1, turn on oven, step 2 open oven door, step 3 weigh out sugar , ect, etc

xnipher (author)loftladder2008-04-11

Well, that's ok about Jake Tobaks' comment. i'll do it someday with pictures.... yes.. you should stir all the ingredients stated at Step #1... then Step # 2 Bake at 400F, Step #3 After 30min, get the cassava and pour some condensed milk and cheese... Step #4 Place it again until top is somewhat brown (Be careful, you might end up to burn ingredients if you don't watch out.... Thanks for the comment, and Tell me if you bake one of this of mine...

tentacle (author)2008-04-11

Thanks, I love this type of cake, now I can make it at home
Philippine food is really good
Great inscrutable!!

xnipher (author)tentacle2008-04-11

thanks., ++ btw, are you a filipino?

flio191 (author)2008-04-10

looks amazing, especially with the cheese! ive never seen it before, ill try it someday when im not being lazy :P

xnipher (author)flio1912008-04-10

you must do it sometime.. if you find a time....., it is very delicious, it is one of my favorite delicacies here at my country

flio191 (author)xnipher2008-04-11

i will! :D i just have to find some... cassava...

jongscx (author)2008-04-11

Yep, that about captures the ridiculous simplicity of the cassava cake recipe... Toss everything in a blender, put it in a pan, bake... Some suggestions though. Bake it first, until it sets, THEN put the condensed milk on top. Otherwise, the bubbling from the water baking out kinda mixes the top layer around and it's not so pretty. Also, it makes it easier to tell when the cake is done as a whole. Another idea for topping is to mix the condensed milk with something called "Maka-pun-oh" aka sweetened mutated coconut strings. and do the topping as suggested above. Personally, we skipped the cheese, but personal preference. Ever notice that every other filipino desert has cheese in it? Lastly, you can also use regular/fresh cassava instead of frozen. You peel it by scoring a line with a paring knife on the skin, and peeling it off like an orange. Then, split it down the middle, and cut out the core, it's like a woody string that makes people go "hmm... " if it gets into the finished cake. Then, just cube and toss it in the blender. Go easy on the blender... we toasted quite a few back when we were making these every other weekend.

JakeTobak (author)2008-04-10

It's not the worse Instructable, but yo ucould improve it. Try splitting Step 1 into 4 steps and include a picture for each of those steps that you took yourself while making it.

xnipher (author)JakeTobak2008-04-10

I'll try to find some time to do this....

canida (author)2008-04-10

That looks disturbingly good, given the ingredients. (The cheese on top sounds like a strange combination!)

xnipher (author)canida2008-04-10

one of the most delicious ingredients of this is the cheese!..... just put it when the Cassava Cake is still hot so that it will melt..

AP (author)2008-04-10

Do none of you put cheddar on your apple pie? Cheese and fruit are a classic combination.

xxxafterglow (author)AP2008-04-10

I do I do!!! You know what else rules? Gouda, apple and mint sandwiches w/ a little mayo, salt and pepper.

jimtran93 (author)2008-04-10

when i make it, i usually don't put cheese on top...... .....if the cheese make it sound "too weird" to you non-asians, you cab skip the cheese and it will taste more "normal"
