Tapioca Cake | thumb in plum

It would seem as though I'm on a tentative schedule when it comes to blogging. So I won't say I'm back. I'll just say hello. And what better way to renew one's welcome than with something sweet?

This "cake" is chewy and full of coconutty goodness. I'd liken it to a less dense mochi so it's a great substitute if you are going grain free. The flavor reminds me of butter mochi sans butter. I made it, they ate it. It was gone within an hour. I guess we all had a sweet tooth.

I've posted my original recipe however if you'd like to cut down on the sugar you can substitute C&H sugar/stevia mix.
