Cassava Cake Special

MANILA, Philippines — To always remember, use and propagate native ingredients and to continuously cook Filipino dishes.

This is the most important reminder of Chef Michael Giovan "Tatung" Sarthou III when he did a Revisiting Pinoy Classics demo for The Maya Kitchen as part of its Culinary Elite Series. One of the recipes that he shared during the demo was that of Cassava Cake Special, here in all its delicious splendor. A perfect dessert and merienda, this special cassava bibingka is made more special with the addition of nata de coco, kaong and shredded young coconut into the cassava mixture. This is topped with a sweet yema-like glaze.

Try making it at home!
