No Bake Tapioca Cake is an eggless, naturally gluten-free Brazilian delicacy made from 6 staple ingredients, which is quick to prepare and served topped with sweetened condensed milk and coconut flakes.
Start by boiling whole milk (or the same amount of water if your prefer).
Meanwhile, combine minute tapioca, sugar, both coconut flakes and coconut milk, and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk in a large heat proof bowl or pirex.
Next, add the boiling milk or water and stir well until obtaining a homogeneous mixture.
Immediately transfer the mixture to a 10-cup wet ring pan, level the mixture, cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours
Last, carefully run a paring knife around the edges to loosen the cake, place a serving plate on top, and invert the cake in order to unmold.
Serve chilled and topped with the remaining sweetened condensed milk (1/2 can) and a sprinkle of coconut flakes. Garnish cake if desired (I garnished mine with berries and lime rinds).
