Cassava Cake

Oftentimes, when I visit my sister at UK, she always told me, "You want me to bake cassava cake for you?". It sounds so hard to do. But when my sister share her recipe with me, aha!!!, I kinda enjoy doing it. I think, every month I am asking my husband to drive me at Pinoy store to buy some ingredients. Good thing, i can buy grated cassava or else it is indeed hard to make. Thanks to clever Filipinos who invented the idea.
