Cassava Bibingka Recipe

Credits Esorana Villamor Tomboc
Cassava Bibingka is another type of kakanin from the Philippines. Traditionally cooked in clay pots lined with banana leaves.
Nowadays, you can easily cook it in an oven. It is better in taste and flavor if you cook it lined with banana leaves instead of foils. This recipe is made of grated cassava milk, egg, and coconut milk. So heavenly delicious if cooked just right. Do not over cook it, so it is soft and melts in your mouth. Happy baking!
