Tapioca Cake (Kuih Bingka)


I was at the market last Saturday and saw the vegetable seller selling some very nice tapioca.  All the tubers are still attached to the tree and he was cutting some for his customer when I walked pass.  They look very fresh so I decided to get some to make this cake since I have not made it for quite a while already. Bought some fresh coconut milk too so all the ingredients are preservation free. This time, I didn't shred the tapioca fine enough, hence the bits of tapioca can be seen in the final product.  Tastewise not much difference, still soft and delicious! Great as an afternoon snack with a cup of tea!

For those who wish to try out this cake, the recipe can be found here.

  3. The cake texture looks really beautiful. I bet it must be as scrumptious....eventhough I am not a big fan of this cake. Well done! Hope you're enjoying your day.

    @Monet...Thanks!:D
    @Kristy...I do not like tapioca cook any other way except this! Used to eat it steamed with some sugar which had me choking if I bite too big a mouthful:P

  5. I've never used anything other than Tapioca flour. Hence, using the fresh kind was totally new to me.

    Ciao for now and flavourful wishes,

  9. @Claudia...This cake is not the conventional where flour is used. This cake only uses shredded tapioca as the main ingredients.

  11. Mmmm...my favourite. My hubby would be so happy if he gets to eat this. Sadly I have not found tapioca in supermarkets here or Chinese shops. A few months ago I found the frozen grated ones in London Chinatown. Hope one day they sell that here too.

  15. This looks like a wonderful cake, Jeannie. I've never seen tapioca sold in the form you used, but maybe I can find it at my local Asian market and I imagine the coconut milk adds so much flavor. What a lovely dessert.

  18. @Cathy...It is very easily available here. I believe it is also known as yuca or cassava.

    @Olive...Sounds like a good idea to enjoy it with a cup of ginger tea...cleanse out the extra fat from coconut milk.

    @Sonia...It is very easy to make. The only thing that turns me off is the shredding of the tapioca:P
