Yuca Cake


  • 6 pieces Tio Jorge® Peeled Yuca
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Tapioca starch
  • 1 cup Coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla vanilla bean paste
  • 2 ea. Eggs


  1. Add the peeled yuca into the food processor. Add water to help blend/grate into pulp. Strain with a sieve and strain again with cheesecloth.
  2. In a bowl add in all ingredients and whisk until incorporated. Should be a pourable batter. You can adjust slightly with more coconut milk or adding more yuca if needed.
  3. Oil your baking vessel. I also added parchment to help release the cake from the pan.
  4. Pour in your batter. Bake at 375f until a toothpick comes out clean. You can spread butter on the top to add color during the breaking process.
