cassava cake

when i was on vacation, my niece (who’s been cooking since she was in grade school) prepared cassava cake for us… we bought the ingredients, including the grated cassava, from a filipino store in cleveland, ohio and the total amounted to less than $10… here’s the list of ingredients and the very simple procedure to make this delicious native cake…

cassava cake (ala Tepot)

ingredients:
12 oz or 1 small bottle of macapuno
14 oz or 1 can of condensed milk
3 16 oz (3lbs total) bags of grated cassava
1/2 cup white sugar
2 13.5 oz cans of coconut milk

steps:
– preheat the oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit
– in a sauce pan, stir together the macapuno, grated cassava, sugar, coconut milk and half the condensed milk until boiling
– transfer mixture to a 9 x 13 pyrex or any ovensafe dish
– bake for 40 minutes
– remove from the oven and spread the remaining condensed milk on top
– return to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until the top turns brown
– cool or refrigerate before serving

  1. hi, im a teenager from the philippines and id like to say that im really fascinated by your blog. my sisters and i were surfing through the net, looking for korean stuff (coz we’re currently addicted to it..hehehe) and coincidentally we found your site.. πŸ™‚ it’s really nice seeing korea through the eyes of a filipina..:) keep up the good work po.. hehe.. god bless!

  2. Hello there. My name is Ysa (although it’s really Aisa) I’ve been following your blog for about a month now and I love your thoughts and views on life in Korea. I have a brother who is currently working there while his family is in the Philippines and he tells me all sorts of stories about Korea. I’ve loved Korea long before the Korean Wave hit us here in North America and made a promise to myself that once I hit the right age and time, I will eventually move there. So please, tell me more ^^ Mahirap ba talaga ang buhay dyan? I’m currently living in Canada, been here for 16 years now, and I feel that it’s time to make a change in my life. Only thing is, I have a child of my own now and a fiance. Btw, I’m 22, in case you’re wondering. Any advice or tips?

  3. OHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHH- thank you so much for the recipe for cassava cake!!!! and what is macupuno? And how can I obtain ingredients for this in Korea?

  4. ^^ hiya! macapuno is a coconut product… you can get it from a filipino store (like the one near the philippine embassy in itaewon or every sunday at hyewhadong)… as for the cassava… i saw some “ma san” (or is it “san ma”) at e-mart… i think it’s the same thing…
