Filipino Food Cassava Cake

Cassava cake is a type cake made out of cassava and coconut milk, a popular dessert or snack in the Philippines. Cassava which is also called yuca or manioc is a root crop native to tropical and sub-tropical regions. It is the third largest source of carbohydrates after rice and corn. Cassava is very rich in starch, calcium, phosphorus and Vitamin C, though it contains those good vitamins and minerals cassava is toxic as well and should not be consumed raw due to linamarin and lotaustralin which are toxic compounds and a kilogram of these root crops can contain 20mg to 1g of cyanide per kilogram (it only takes 40mg of cassava to kill a cow) but if you are lucky to live it is also known to cause goiters, pancreatitis and ataxia.

Though it is said to be toxic cooking this would greatly reduce the toxins. Cassava can be cooked in a multitude of ways where it can replace potato, can be deep fried; can be included in soups, stews and purees. It can also be used in desserts; in fact sago pearls are from cassava starch.
