  • Combine eggs, salt, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and ginger in a bowl. Beat to add air and fluff up eggs. Combine sugar and butter in a separate bowl and beat together. Add egg mixture to butter mixture and combine gently.

  • Place cassava in a large bowl and add egg-butter mixture. Pour into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Reduce temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and continue baking until pie is set, 2 to 2 1/2 hours more.

Cook's Note:

If desired, meat may be added to this dish. Generally chicken and or pork are used. Approximately 3 to 5 pounds of cooked meat may be added to the center of the pie. Pour 1/2 to 2/3 of the batter into the pan. Spread the meat around the center of the pan, leaving about half the batter around the edges without meat. Pour remaining batter on top.

This is a really good recipe for making a Cassava Pie but typically, because this pie is extremely rich, a pan this large would serve many more than 12 portions. I will say that this is the first time I’ve heard of adding ginger to Cassava Pie. Read More
