Cassava Cake is a classic Filipino dessert made from grated cassava (yuca). Cassava also known as “kamoteng kahoy” and “balanghoy” in the Philippines. It is a root vegetable widely consumed in developing countries and cooked in many different ways.
Cassava Cake is rich and creamy with custard-like texture from the grated cassava. When buying cassava at Asian stores in the US, you have to look for “yuca” as that is what they call cassava and of course you can tell from looking at it that it is cassava if you have cooked it before.
