This very Brazilian cake is not light and airy as the cakes we know. It is rich and dense and delicious. It is often called pudding because of its moist texture. It is made with raw processed cassava and fresh ripe coconut. It's very easy to make. I found it at Maura's blog, Trainee de Cozinheira.
I was craving this pudding since I came back to Brazil from Korea because we can't find cassavas there.
