This version of tapioca cake infuses exotic ingredients for a savory taste. Created by chef Ming Tsai, this cake includes coconut and papaya.

Inspired by Damien D'Silva's tapioca cake, Tsai has updated the recipe to provide a more flavorful flair. Though both cakes offer great texture, the original cake was basic in spices and not nearly as exciting as this remake. To deliver a more exotic aspect to his cake, Tsai added coconut and lime to the ingredients list. To further the fruity aspect, Ming Tsai's Coconut Tapioca Cake is served with a side of chopped papaya, which adds a very unique flavor.

Though created by an American restaurateur and celebrity chef, this recipe is of moderate difficulty. To recreate this cake at home, purchase the recipe video on Tsai's foodie site.
