Cassava cake has been a favorite treat during Filipino gatherings. It is commonly cooked by baking in the oven. This recipe introduces another way of cooking cassava cake, which is by steaming. This steamed cassava cake recipe might be simple, but the result tastes just right. It is not too sweet and it has a nice texture. I recommend adding shredded quick melt or sharp cheddar cheese on top for best results.
I used silicone cupcake molds to achieve bite-sized portions of cassava cake. It might look like cheese puto, but it tastes way different and it also denser. Using a bamboo steamer is also convenient for me because I do not need to put cheese cloth over the steamer to prevent water from steam from dripping. The cover of the bamboo steamer absorbs the liquid instantly.
