  • 1 pack (16 oz) frozen, grated cassava - thawed
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut - (optional)
  • ¾ can (1 can is 14 oz) condensed milk
  • ¾ can (1 can is 12.05 fl oz) evaporated milk
  • ¾ can (1 can is 13.5 fl oz) coconut milk
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 egg yolks



  • Grease pan or baking dish with butter and set aside.
  • In a big, deep bowl, combine all the ingredients for the cassava cake and mix well until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Pour the mixture into the greased pan or baking dish and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 375°F/180°C.
  • After the cake is baked, combine and mix all the ingredients for the custard in a bowl. Pour this on top of the pre-baked cassava cake and bake for another 15-25 minutes or until custard is cooked and turns golden.



It may be served while still warm but I like it best when it has stayed at least overnight in the fridge.
