Fermented Cassava Cake With Cheddar Cheese (Cake Tape)

I love this cake, but the problem is it's impossible to find fermented cassava in Singapore
And it's too troublesome to make!
I ever bought the cake from Jakarta and paid quite an amount for the shipping fee - I did post here - was really craving for it at that time :P
Coincedentally my mum brought some from Jakarta, so here it is...
This I can say the best fermented cassava cake Ive ever tried - soft texture, not too dense, can really taste the fermented cassava and the cheese - yum! :P

What you need:

1/4kg fermented cassava - mashed
4 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
200g butter
250g sugar
6 eggs + 1 egg yolk
250g plain flour - sift
100g grated cheddar cheese
extra grated cheddar cheese for topping

Beat cassava, condensed milk and butter - til fluffy and creamy
In another bowl, beat sugar and eggs til light and fluffy
In low speed, add in cassava mixture into the egg mixture - mix well
Add in grated cheese, mix well
Fold in flour - do it gradually til well incorporated
Pour onto greased 24cm square pan, bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes
Take out the pan and add the cheese topping, continue baking for another 30 minutes or til golden light brown

Mummy, please bring more fermented cassava the next time you come visit me okay :)
