This is a snack/dessert that I can say I’m pretty good at making. I’ve been making this yummy delicacy while we were still living in the U.K. some 10 years ago when my sister-in-law showed me how. Now in France, I keep this recipe which is very easy to make.

This root crop or tuber is used in many cuisines all over the world. In fact, it is used for sweet or savory dishes in the Philippines. Also called as kamoteng kahoy, cassava has a lot of uses like making tapioca from the starch. But one of the more popular uses of cassava back home is making cassava cake which is at par with other Filipino desserts like suman mais and bibingki. This popular Filipino dessert is in a class of its own.
