How to Make Kuih Bingka Ubi (Baked Cassava Cake)

Kuih Bingka Ubi or Baked Cassava Cake is about as simple a Malay kuih as you can make, and the bonus is that it’s gluten-free. If you’re based in Sydney, you should be able to find grated cassava easily in the freezer section of Indian and well-stocked Asian grocery stores – it’s a definite timesaver.

BTW I know I’ve posted this recipe on this website previously; this version is based on baking it in an oven as opposed to an air-fryer. I’ve also made some tweaks based on the recipe posted in Malay (that’s why it pays to be multi-lingual, folks) at Resepi Bonda.

  • 4 cups grated cassava
  • 1 ½ cups coconut cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar

  1. Combine all ingredients except butter, and pour into a greased 8-inch baking tray.
  2. Dot the surface of the cake with butter.
  3. Bake for 60 minutes at 200°C or until done.
  4. Allow to cool before cutting into slices to serve.
