Bibingka Cassava

Bibingka Cassava is a tradition Filipino dessert. This dessert is very similar to our Malaysian Kuih Bingka. The traditional bibingka will have a cheese or custard topping to it but I omitted that. I prefer it plain. For me the taste of this bibingka is a cross between mochi and kuih bingka . I was surprised that Carlos didn’t turn away from this dessert. I think it is because this dessert was baked and not steamed.

Ingredient A

2 pounds grated cassava
1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
3 eggs
3/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup Mochiko flour/glutinous rice flour
4 tbsp melted butter

Ingredients B

120 gram sugar
120 gram gula Melaka/palm sugar/brown sugar
A few drop of yellow coloring (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line and greased a baking pan or any type of mould or pan you are using
2. In a large mixing bowl, combined all the ingredients A and mix well. Divide the mixture into two equal amounts. Mix one portion with sugar and a few drop of yellow coloring. And the other one with the gula Melaka/palm sugar.
3. Pour one portion of the mix into the baking pan or mould and bake for 20 minutes. Take out the pan and pour the remainder portion on top. Let it bake for another 40 - 45 minutes or until the top is dry and firm to touch.If you are using the donut pan, the 1st portion will take 10 minutes and the second another 15 min to bake.
4. Remove from oven and let it cool completely before serving.

Oh, so this was the one you told me about the other day.
It definately looks so good. Especially when baked in rings.

This looks delicious. It's a long time I have not eaten cassava cake. I have to go and look for cassava. Hope can find it here in the supermarket. Thanks very much for sharing.

Can imagine this has a bit more chewiness to it compared to kueh bingka. Lovely doughnut shapes! Thanks for during this new & interesting recipe. ;)

Esther said...

I never heard of this before, but they remind me of donuts :) haha, probably because of the shape. I never heard of cassava either.

Dori said...

Lovely dessert, looks good :)

Jeannie said...

Love this kuih very much...looks cute the way you bake them in doughnut moulds.

Pei-Lin said...

HAHA! Why ar? Carlos has a fear against all things steamed? LOL! I remember you told me how particular he is about what goes into his mouth ... LOL!

Based on your description, I suppose it's lighter in texture?

Alright, I'll watch out for your Merdeka Open House post!

Take care!

Bee Bee, yes the Mochiko flour gave the chewiness texture.

Kristy, thank you.

ICook4Fun said...

Esther, you are able to get this root vegetable from the Asian market.

Meeso, thanks

Pei-lin, it is difficult to convince him to eat our kueh especially when it it soft and jiggly ha ha.. as you know most of our kuehs are steamed.

Reese, this is the one :)

LCOM, yes have to find ways of utilizing the donut pan :)

Angie, hope you can find it :)

Elin said...

I have never eaten this before only the local ones but I guess this is slightly different since it has a mochi and kuih bingka texture. I think I would love this kuih :)
