Cassava cake is a Filipino dessert made from manioc (cassava). Here is a recipe that really easy to make and with deliciously rich and creamy custard topping. A perfect dessert for special occasions but also great for coffee or tea time.
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.
