A while ago I wrote something about a surinam style cake called bojo. It's easy to make and tastes great. So here is the recipe.
1 kg. cassava
2 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. Almond essence
1 tbs. vanilla essence
200 gr. sugar
75 gr. butter
pinch of salt
1 large glass of milk
100 gr. Raisins or currants.
Peel and rasp the cassava. Crack the coconut and remove flesh (or buy a bag of already shelled coconut). Remove the brown skin and rasp the flesh. Whisk the eggs with sugar and vanilla and almond essence. Add to the rasped coconut and cassava.
Add milk and salt.
Melt the butter and pour into mixture.
Take a cake tin and rub sides with butter. Pour mixture in.
Put the tin into a preheated oven on gas mark 5/175 ºC
Bake for about 1 hour.
Shake some cinnamonpowder over it when done.
Cut and eat.
