Cassava cake is a very popular dessert in the Philippines, so Reese is making a very special version for her friends to try when they come to visit. Reese's family come from the Philippines and this recipe is a family favourite. This is a cake that has lots of savoury ingredients such as cheddar cheese and cassava but also includes sweet flavours such as condensed milk and coconut cream. Cassava is a root vegetable and tastes very different when it is eaten on its own, so Reese is hoping her friends will like the taste of it when they taste it in her cake. She's even preparing some delicious fruit to serve alongside it.
