Baked Cassava Cake 
Grated Tapioca/Yuca/cassava - 2 cups
Coconut cream or coconut milk - 1 cup
( I used coconut cream)
Sugar - 1/4 cup
( today i have used brown sugar )
Cardamom powder - 3/4 tsp
Salt a pinch
Yellow food colour ( optional) - few drops
( I used a generous pinch of saffron today to give colour to my dish)
Ghee for greasing the pan
Banana leaf to line the baking tray/pan

Peel off the brown skin from the tapioca,wash it and then grate it finely.
Put the grated tapioca in a bowl to this add the sugar or brown sugar, cardamom powder,salt and add the coconut cream or coconut milk.
Mix everything well add food colour if using or the saffron.
Line a baking tray with a banana leaf and grease it with butter or ghee pour the prepared mixture and spread it evenly.

Bake this in oven for around 20 minutes at 375 deg.F when its slightly brown on top then remove and brush it up with ghee or butter and put it back in the oven and bake for another 20 minutes or till the cake is cooked and top is light brown in colour.
Insert a tooth pick in the middle of the cake if it comes out clean then your cake is done.
Cool completely and then using a knife loosen the sides,invert it on to a plate and remove the banana leaf.Then cut into desired shape.
I kept it in fridge for 4 hours and then cut the cake.

a) I have modified the recipe in actual recipe they add eggs,cinnamon powder or vanilla essence.
b) I have used brown sugar here instead of white sugar.
c) Don't worry if you don't have banana leaf to line your tray,just grease the pan and pour the mixture.
d) Each oven is different so cooking time may vary.

Thanks for watching !
