Baked Cassava Cake/Kuih Bingka Ubi Kayu

This must be one of the easiest Nonya kuih to make. All you have to do is put all the ingredients together and bake. This cake is a lighter version than the usual one as I cut down on the sugar and coconut milk. This kuih is especially good for breakfast or afternoon tea.

Ingredients :

2 lbs of grated cassava – thawed and drain the juice well
2 tbsp of melted butter
2 eggs
240 grm of palm sugar (gula melaka)or brown sugar
2 pandan (screwpine) leaves
3/4 cup of water
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp of custard power or cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt

1. Cut the palm sugar into small pieces, bring the 3/4 water to boil and add in the palm sugar and pandan leaves. Simmer until the sugar melted. Strain and let it cool
2. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Line an 8" x 8" pan with foil, grease the foil.
3. In a mixing bowl, combine cassave (ubi kayu), sugar syrup, eggs, custard powder,melted butter and salt. Miix everything really well.
4. Pour mixture into greased pan. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour. If the top is still not browned after an hour switch your oven to broil and broil for 1 minute until the top is brown. Check constantly to make sure it's not burnt.
5. Cool completely before cutting into it.

Kitchen Corner, hope you like this.

Heok, 1 pound is about 453 grms.

Nyonya, we used to have ubi kayu at our backyard too and there were huge :)

Lesley, for this I added custard powder as it give a nice fragrant and a much softer texture.

Food for tots, thank you.

Mat, I beli tu kat Melaka lah. I lagi suka your set that you just posted at your blog :)Next time I balik I nak cari lagi.

Leemei, want to come over for tea and we can have some together :)

Christelle said...

Wow, it sounds very exotic to me. I think I can find some cassava in the shops, I need to have a look, sounds really worth finding it!:))
Pandan leaves are not too easy, but I might be able to find them frozen?

ICook4Fun said...

Kim, thanks for stopping by and your kind comment.

Pigpig, mine too :)

Christelle, I think you might be able to find the grated frozen kind in England. Here we have the fresh and frozen kind :)

Mimi said...

Apa Khabar! I love your recipes as it reminds me of all the good food when I was back in Msia.

I have some frozen cassava in my freezer. Can you tell me 2 lbs is equivalent to how many cups?

can I use lite coconut milk and egg whites only for this?

Thanks for your reply.


ICook4Fun said...

Mimi, I am not too sure how many cups but if you are in US a packet of frozen grated cassave is a pound. So I used 2 packet. I guess you can use lite coconut milk and egg white but I won't be as lemak :)
