Cassava Cake with Macapuno

My favorite Cassava cake is from Don Benito’s, it’s soft and it melts in your mouth. It’s cheesy and slightly sweet. You gotta try this Cassava cake ala Don Benito’s with Macapuno and grate lots of cheese on top. This is heavenly delicious Cassava cake!


2 packages (4 cups) grated cassava
1 can coconut milk
1 can condensed milk
1 bottle sweetened macapuno/coconut strips (use 3/4 only)
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter , melted for baking tray
1/4 cup sugar (optional)

Toppings Mixture for Cassava Cake:
