I was given quite a few cassavas for free the other day. The lady who often comes to the house and sell me veggies offered it to me for free. Of course I love freebies but I don't want to take advantage of her generosity because I know she needs to make some money for her family. I was still getting some money from my wallet when she started to walk away and told me that she's giving the cassava to me for free and that I don't have to pay her. She said that I gave her some stuffs in the past like sandals and shirts and it's time for her to return the favor. Oh my, I gave those stuffs without expecting anything in return. She's a lady with a very good heart.
Anyways, it's been three days since I was given those cassavas so I thought of cooking a cassava cake. I know it's a lot of hassle to do it because I have to peel those cassavas and then grate it. I did that last night and I was grating it while I was watching my favorite soap opera. After I grated all the cassavas, I put it in the fridge and it's only this afternoon that I baked the cassava cake. It's only my second time to bake one. The last time was when I was in Texas a few years ago. I was so excited to see the outcome this time. After I baked it, I took it out from the oven and let it cool down. Then I was so ecstatic to eat a slice and it turn out so good. My hubby love it of course. Here's the recipe which I got from the internet.
• 3 cups grated cassava
