  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cups grated fresh cassava

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking dish with banana leaves.
  2. Mix sweetened condensed milk, coconut milk, eggs, and butter together in a bowl; add 1/2 of the Cheddar cheese and mix well. Stir cassava and buko into the milk mixture; pour into the prepared baking dish.
