Bánh khoai mì nướng, literally baked cassava (or manioc) cake in Vietnamese, is a sticky, sweet cake. The cassava provides the starch, the coconut milk provides the fat, and condensed milk is used as a sweetener. It\'s unlike any Western dessert you\'ve ever tried.Cassava is a starchy tuberous root that is widely used in South America, Africa and Asia. The flour made from the roots is called tapioca.

Cassava Cake What it is: A creamy, not-too-sweet dessert made from cassava root and coconut milk. Why it’s awesome: It’s sweet, but not cloyingly so. For texture, the top is broiled until it’s almost crunchy. It can also be made gluten-free.
