Baked Cassava cake

Baked Cassava cake


When I saw My Kitchen Snippets's baked cassava cake, i immediate bookmarked but I only managed to do it after 4 months later. I was curious how cassava can make into cake with butter and flour. The ingredients are slighlty difference from what the usual Bengka Ubi (see Jane's recipe here).

This cake is buttery and taste quite good. If next time I going to do this , I must grate cassava till finely as i find the grated cassava in this cake was a bit hard.

Sonia, I think this baked version is better than the traditional version. Much addictive! Actually, next time you can bring your fresh casava to the coconut vendor to ask them to grind for you by using the new model machine(not the round one!). It turns out really fine & nice. Btw, Biren just posted this recipe not long ago. Can't remember if the ingredients used are the same.
Thanks for sharing.

Sonia, we should be neighbours! I can atleast put up in your home everyday, enjoying your food! Hehehe..

This cake is such a temptation :)

daphne said...

I am pretty sure i bookedmark this too- You did a great job on yours and I love how you say it is buttery. It's hard to tell if you need to grate it finely isnt it as not grating it too fine means there is texture- and i didnt even think yours look fine! ouch.. good tip

wendyywy @ Table for 2..... or more said...

Ya woh, the cassava seems a bit thick, I used a fine grater to do the job. The cassava texture's in my cake was undetected when eaten. Adding in some grated coconut is a good idea

Honey Bee Sweets said...

I love baked cassava kueh too. :) I recently made it too but it turned out as what you mentioned, the cassava was a bit hard. :P I will also grate it to very fine if I make it agin. ;) But love the golden color there!

ICook4Fun said...

I used ready grated cassava and the cake turn out really moist. Maybe you can put the cassava into a food processor to give it a finer texture. Adding coconut to it is a great idea.

Je n'ai encore jamais utilisé de manioc pour des gâteaux. J'en mangerai avec plaisir.
A très bientôt.

I had never heard of cassava before. I looked it up and I still am unclear on what it is. I wonder if I could even find it locally. The only help I could find was that it tastes like either a potato or tapioca? Is that at all right? I love trying new things, but I don't think this is going to be one of them. It looks delicious though!

divya said...

looks awesome dear..lovely recipe.

AhTee said...

I'd bookmarked this! My mum gonna love dis! The fragrance of the butter & cassava must had covered ur whole kitchen while baking rite?! hehe..

Jeannie said...

I have tried this and also find the cassava a bit rough...must grate it finer as you said. Tastewise, very delicious...good idea to add coconut.

I am also planning to make casava cake from Biren's recipe (Roti n Rice). Yours look delicious too! Now I really need to go buy ingredients. Looks yummy Sonia!

Sherleen.T said...

hihi..drop by to say hi ^_^

Biren @ Roti n Rice said...

I love kuih bingka and yours look delicious! Grating the tapioca is a lot of work. So glad we can buy grated tapioca or cassava here :)

Jun said...

I have never had bengka ubi before, but this cake looks like a dense dessert cake, something like kuih that is sold in the SEA market, doesn't it?

Beautiful pictures! Loving your space here.

J.C. said...

I love eating bingka ubi kayu or anything with cassava in it. However, I always stay away from making it for fear of not knowing how to prepare the cassava.

If not mistaken, the centre core of the cassava is discarded as it tastes bitter. And the juice of the grated cassava is also strained and removed. Did you do these 2 steps? I would love to give this recipe a try as the cake looks so delicious.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

JC, yes, you are right, I did the 2 steps.

Hi Biren R&R
May i know where can i buy the grated tapioca?

Thank you

While I was grating the tapioca, it oxidised and the cake was turned out to be dark brown! Any similar experiences and tips?

Actually, when you can carry your clean casava to the grape source to ask them to smash for you by using the new design machine(not the circular one!). It changes out really excellent & awesome. Btw, Biren just published this formula recently. Can't keep in mind if the substances used are the same. rs gold for sale
