Instructions
  1. Peel yuca root and cut into large pieces. Put in food processor and process till finely chopped.
  2. Scoop chopped yuca root into medium sized bowl.
  3. Heat 10 or 12 inch cast iron pan over medium heat.
  4. When the pan is heated add the oil to the pan.
  5. Peel and finely chop garlic then mash the garlic. This will release the flavor.
  6. Add sea salt, garlic, coconut milk, raw honey, and tapioca starch to the yuca root, mix till combined.
  7. When the oil is smoking reduce heat to medium low.
  8. Using a large spoon, like a soup spoon, scoop the yuca root mixture and gently drop the mixture into the oil.
  9. Cook 3 minutes per side or till golden brown.
  10. Do not overcrowd the pan. I put 5 cakes in the pan at a time.
  11. Remove from the pan and rest on a paper towel lined plate.
