  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 8 tablespoons cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup condensed milk

  1. Make the batter by combining the grated cassava, butter, ½ cup condensed milk, ½ cup evaporated milk, 6 tablespoons cheddar cheese, 14 tablespoons sugar, and 2 eggs in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Add the 2 cups coconut milk in the mixing bowl where the mixed ingredients are. Mix again.
  3. Grease the baking tray then pour-in the batter (these are the ingredients that you just mixed together).
  4. Pre -heat oven for 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes then put-in the baking tray with batter and bake for 1 hour.Remove from the oven and set aside.
  5. Meanwhile prepare the topping by combining 2 tablespoons sugar and flour in the heated saucepan.
