  • Mix cassava, eggs, coconut milk, sugar, vegetable oil, and salt together well in a large bowl. Stir in flour and grated coconut. Pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool and serve.

Cook's Notes:

If using all-purpose flour, add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon baking powder.

Use a zester tool to scrape or shred the coconut from the half-shell.
