    For all the first time makers, let me tell you... the more cassava added, the thicker the cake. The less, it will be more softer and fluffy more custard like. 4 cups make a thick cake. 2 cups will make it really fluffy. When grating fresh cassava, one pound will yield about 1.5 cups and the grated product will have a mushy consistency. I added 1/2 cup of dried sweetened coconut flakes. It is better to add jarred macapuno strings, or fresh coconut. It is also better to reserve a couple tablespoons of condensed milk and coconut milk to add as a topping at the last 15 minutes of baking. Thanks so much for the formula my friend. Very delish.  -  09 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    You have the ingredients wrong. You say 2 cups of cassava, but for that much liquid you need 4 cups.  -  11 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I use frozen grated cassava too, which can be found in many Asian stores.  -  05 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
