Honduran Yucca Cake with Sweet Milk Sauce is similar to a crustless pumpkin pie, and this dense, sweet yucca dessert has a lovely texture and spiced mocha flavor. Yucca—also known as cassava—is a staple crop throughout Honduras and grows everywhere, even in the poorest soils. Use a hand grater rather than a food processor to grate the yucca for best results. For a finishing touch, pour sweetened condensed milk over the baked cake before serving.

Disappointing

I was so looking forward to trying this recipe. What a bitter disappointment! The cake's texture was firm, chewy and gummy. There was also a bitter aftertaste. The best thing about this cake was the condensed milk. I was sorry I wasted an entire can on this recipe.
