grated, peeled yucca
1 (12 ounce) can
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
1 (14 ounce) can
For all the first time makers, let me tell you... the more cassava added, the thicker the cake. The less, it will be more softer and fluffy more custard like. 4 cups make a thick cake. 2 cups will make it really fluffy. When grating fresh cassava, one pound will yield about 1.5 cups and the grated product will have a mushy consistency. I added 1/2 cup of dried sweetened coconut flakes. It is better to add jarred macapuno strings, or fresh coconut. It is also better to reserve a couple tablespoons of condensed milk and coconut milk to add as a topping at the last 15 minutes of baking. Thanks so much for the formula my friend. Very delish.
You have the ingredients wrong. You say 2 cups of cassava, but for that much liquid you need 4 cups.
I use frozen grated cassava too, which can be found in many Asian stores.
This is my first time making cassava. I used two 14oz. packages of frozen grated cassava, thawed and drained, it looked about 4 cups. Baking time was about 1 hr 15 min. The top was already browned, so I didnt bother broiling it. We love it! Thanks for a great, simple recipe!
Yucca and cassava are the same. Goya makes a very nice frozen cassava product. Found it at Wegman's food stores, not sure if you have them near you or not. You can probably contact your store manager and request that they order some from Goya for you! I used theirs for a very good cassava pie just a couple of months ago.
I love this recipe, simple and easy. Only think I want to add next time will be sugar. Also, I add 1 tsp of vanilla and I used dried unsweetened coconut, taste good. But everything turn great. Thanks!
where can you find yucca? we use Cassava or Farine in Bermuda, now I live in Canada can't find it...help.
I am always tempted to buy the bakery items at the Asian grocery store, but are too afraid to eat them for sanitary reasons. Don't know how old they are and how long they have been sitting at room temperature at the store. Also, all the food color we don't need to consume.
This recipe allows me to enjoy Asian desert made simply at home. It stays soft and chewy warm or cold. I was able to get a bag (2lb./32oz) of frozen yucca at a local Indian grocery store. I thawed, rinsed and drained the yucca in a colander. In a blender, I placed the yucca, 12 oz of water instead of evaporated milk, coconut milk and process until smooth. If you do not have a large blender (Vitamix), you may need to do two batches. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg and condensed milk. I also added 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes. Pour the yucca mixture into the bowl and blend them together well. Coat a 3 quart casserole pan with non-stick spray. Bake for 1 hour and 10 mins. until the edge is golden. Will make this again, can't stop eating until my stomach is bloated.
