Steamed Cassava Cake (Kue talam singkong)

Having friends coming over for lunch today. And I am not usually doing the potluck. So I have to set up and planning the menu. Of course since they all are my Indonesian friends so I am going to cook Indonesian food for them. Tempeh mendoan, and fried pastry puff as appetizers. For main dish I choose Soto daging aka beef yellow soup because easy to cook. Then for the dessert I am going to make kue lupis, and this steamed cassava cake.
So this time I am going to share my recipe how to make Indonesian steamed cassava cake aka kue talam singkong.
This cake is very light, delicious and very easy to make. It’s good for summer dessert.
And here is the recipe.


  1. 1 package grated cassava (you can easily find it at the Asian or Pilipino store. Usually at the frozen section) It’s about 500g or 1 pound in 1 package
  2. Sugar 175g (less or more)
  3. 1 sachets agar-agar with any color. I used Indonesian agar-agar or gelatin
  4. 100 ml coconut milk (you can substitute with almond milk)
  5. Sliced pineapple (fresh or from can)


  1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except pineapple.

  2. Add pineapple and mix well. Then transfer the mixture into a pan that has been grease with oil or cooking spray. Steam for 45 minutes until done.

  3. Lift up from the steamer and let it cool. Remove from the pan and cut it into a square or according to taste and serve.

  4. You can serve it just like that or with grated coconut. Enjoy ?
