Banh Khoai Mi

A dear friend of mine Nuong, shared her dessert with me one afternoon and I absolutely loved this. It wasn't as sweet to be called a dessert but this is as sweet as they eat in Vietnam.

These slices of goodness was flavorful and were a perfect medley of coconut and Yucca............which are my favourite by the way. .....sort of reminded me my childhood since I remember eating something similar during the little time I spent my summer's at our farm house by the Coast.
MY memory of eating this is vague but I do remember eating this steamed and not baked................maybe it's a dream !
Either way, my friend got me a big dish of this rich goody cake and I wanted to post this before I forget. Now let me go enjoy my Banh Khoai Mi.

2 packages of frozen khoai mi (grated cassava)--found in the frozen section at most Asian markets
1 package of frozen shredded young coconut (found next to the frozen cassava)
1 can of condensed milk
2 Tablespoon of white flour

Preheat oven to 400. Combine all the above ingredients, and pour onto 2 square baking pans. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Don't overbake as the Banh Khoai Mi may become too dry. To serve, cut into square bars.
