PREPARATION TIME : 15 minutes
COOKING TIME : 60 minutes
Pre-heat oven at 400 °F
1 Mix together all the cassava ingredients except the topping. 2 Portion the mix into 2 separate baking pans (or one rectangular pan) and pop them in the oven. Bake for 35 - 40 mins or until the top is firm and set. 3 Mix together the topping and simmer for a minute. Set aside. 4 Pour the topping onto the cake and bake for another 15 minutes or until golden brown. Test for doneness - please see Cook's Tip below. 5 Let the Cassava Cake cool down for 30 minutes or longer before slicing and serving. BENG'S TIPS
* The cassava cake cooks faster if you portion the mix into 2 or 3 smaller pans than baking them all in one pan. * The center of the cake gets cooked last so to test for doneness - the top should be golden brown, then insert a toothpick in the center and if comes out clean, it's done. * Substitution : for a creamier, tastier cake, use Half and Half, light cream or evaporated milk instead of whole milk. Also, you can use 6 egg yolks instead of 3 whole eggs.
