Cassava Cake

This is a classic Filipino desert enjoyed year round. Most of the ingredients can be found in an oriental store near you. I have found the most difficult ingredient to find is usually the coconut cream. If you can't find it don't worry. Simply use another can of coconut milk in it's place. Also it is easier to just buy the cassava already grated. It should be in the freezer section. You could cut the recipe in half but then you are left with 1/2 a can of everything. Or try making one thick cake. You'll have to cook much longer though. Careful, I'm not sure if it will all fit in one pan. I hope you enjoy it!
