Tapioca cake is my favourite, whether baked or steamed. I grew up eating lots of tapioca, also called cassava. It grew wild around our house. When we were hungry, we would just go and dig out some tapioca and boil it. We loved it sprinkled with some sugar. It’s very delicious and filling. The young leaves, especially the tips, make a great dish when fried. This tapioca cake is one of the most popular Malaysian desserts. It is called ‘kuih bingka ubi kayu‘
I love condensed milk in desserts. I just have to add to this tapioca cake. It gives added flavour to the cake. What a way to enjoy my favourite condensed milk….mmmm! A daily dose in whatever way makes me smile. My greatest joy is when I made my own condensed milk. You can imagine how much money I have saved by now. It costs about £1.50 for that small tin which comes with little flavour these days. Make yourself if you are a condensed milk lover like me. Just click on How To Make Condensed Milk.

We were at Chinatown recently. I love going there because there are lots of food ingredients that I miss. I always ended up buying a lot. I was delighted when I saw finely grated frozen tapioca. Nothing came to my mind except baked tapioca cake, my husband’s favourite, and mine too. I bought one packet to try. Once I got home, I quickly set out to make this awesome cake which we miss so much. It came out really delicious. I regretted I didn’t buy more packets to keep in the freezer. I’ll do that next time.
This condensed milk tapioca cake recipe is very simple and easy to make. Just mix everything together and bake. There’s very little washing to do, too.
500g tapioca (finely grated)
300g condensed milk
200g coconut milk
3 eggs (beaten)
60g butter (melted)
1/2C brown sugar
Put everything together into a mixing bowl and mix well. Pour into a baking tin lined with baking paper and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for about 40 minutes. The time depends on the size of the tin used. Let cool before cutting.
