One of the most delicious item to eat at least in Fiji is baked grated cassava. Some call it cassava cake and we call it in Fijian “tavioka yaca”, means grated cassava.
- Grated cassava. Can buy ready grated cassava in packets, frozen or buy fresh cassava, peal it, grade it and your all set.
- 1/2 cup sugar in general but add amount to taste
- 2 eggs (optional)
- 1/3 cup milk
- Vanilla (optional)
- Raisins (optional)
Mix grated cassava in a bowl along with eggs and add 1/2 cup sugar, hint of vanilla and mix well. After thoroughly mixing taste the sugar and add more sugar according to your liking. Add some raisins if you like as well.
Then in a bowl, pour grated cassava and mix melted sugar thoroughly. Add some vanilla for taste.
Put in a greased baking tray and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The top should start getting golden brown. Stick a folk into it to see if it done when something sticks onto the folk.
