Glasses Cake

It's called Glasses Cake because it's very similar to sunglasses when you align the two pieces. For safety, use a special dye for food. If you're dieting to lose weight, eat one piece only because of the high calories.


2 cooking plantains
1 kg cassava, grated
100 g sugar
1 tsp salt
⅛ tsp vanilla
125 g coconut, lengthwise grated
Red dye, especially for food
Green dye, specifically for food
Banana leaves

How to make:

1. Steam cooking plantains, peel and set aside.
2. Mix cassava, sugar, salt, vanilla and 75 grams of grated coconut. Stir well.
3. Divide the dough into two parts. Give one part a red dye and the rest a green.
4. Take a banana leaf. Place the red and the green doughs side by side. Flatten them.
5. Place the cooking plantains in the middle of the dough. Wrap them as making rice cake. Tie both ends with string.
