Cassava ubi kayu cake

Yes, This is a cake not a kuih. This is the 2nd time I make this cake. The 1st time when I introduces this cake to my church cell group members, many are surprised that cassava can also be used to make cake. The cake was finished within minutes. They wanted more !

300g well drained grated cassava (grate finely and squeezed dry)

130gm butter, room temperature
160gm caster sugar
3 large eggs
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup thick coconut milk or substitute with evaporated milk
140gm self-raising flour (or substitute with 140gm cake flour + ½ tablespoon baking powder)
1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup of freshly grated coconut (optional)

1. Greased and line a 8” or 9” square cake tin.
2. Beat butter and sugar till creamy and light.
3. Add in egg one at a time, well combine.
4. Add in vanilla extract, salt and coconut milk, combine well
