WATCH: You Need To Make This Cheese & Ube Cassava Cake
Upgrade your cassava cake with this version that has two kinds of ube in it plus a savory cheese topping.
There are many ways to make a cassava cake. A cassava cake, or a cake made with grated cassava root, is mixed with eggs, three¬†different kinds of milk, sugar, and butter to amp up the richness. It's an already decadent cake that's easy to make¬†with ingredients you can find at any palengke.¬†¬†
There are any number of ways to make it even more intensely¬†flavorful and delicious. We think we found how to do just that and you get a burst of flavor in¬†one awesome bite with this recipe that mixes the best there is in cassava cake with ube and cheese.
We make a normal cassava cake recipe and added the flavors of ube and cheese to the mix in three ways:¬†
The first way¬†we amp up the flavors is by mixing freshly grated¬†ube¬†with the cassava. You may find that¬†when you grate the fresh ube, it will oxidize extremely quickly and turn brown as you grate. That's okay because that's just the way it is before it's cooked.¬†If you want to preserve the bright purple hue, you may want to cook the ube¬†first before adding it into the cake batter.¬†
The second way is by topping the cake with dollops of creamy ube halaya¬†or ube jam.¬†This boosts the ube flavor while assuring whoever is eating it that there really is ube in the cake.¬†
Finally, it's topped with a savory cheese tart layer. The marriage of sweet and¬†salty in this cake is the ultimate flavor bomb that will have you craving this cake long after your plate is clean.¬†
