The base of this cassava cake recipe is fermented cassava and it’s topped with a layer of raisins. The cassava cake recipe ingredients give the cake a complex flavor profile that includes sweet, sour, and savory notes.

The prol cake recipe calls for a fermented cassava cake recipe, which has a distinctive sweet and sour flavor. Because yeast ferments the cassava and converts the starches into sugar, this is what happens. The longer it sits, the sourer it will become.
