    I am also from the Phils. where this cassava (a kind of root crop) is abundant. And cheap. I made this on my husband's small b-day party treat with some of our closefriends and churchmates. They really raved about it. Somebody even asked me how much I am going to sell this to them should they order from me. Really yummy. Can't forget the creamy taste. Two thumbs up! Thanks Chinky, for sharing this wonderful recipe. I might try your puto bread too.  -  17 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Not really what I would consider bibingka. The base of bibingka is rice flour..and since this did not have any in it, it was more of a cassava cake. As far as cassava cakes go...this was o.k. A bit too sweet for my liking.  -  16 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
