Kuih Bingka Ubi (Cassava Cake) 木薯糕
Recipe source : Adapted from here
I love to eat this baked cassava cake which I often buy from Malay stalls selling an assortment of kuih-muih. The vendors usually displayed a wide array of choices which at times I find it hard to make a choice as to which kuih or cake I wish to eat!
Now making this kuih at home is another story. Grating the tapioca is no joke. It is a lot of hard work. But it is well worth the effort as the end result yielded a very fragrant and tasty cassava cake.
I made this for a family gathering and everyone likes it. As I was baking this for the first time, I only made a small loaf. I have to take note to increase the amount the next time.
700g grated tapioca (cassava )
450ml coconut milk
