The Spanish name enyucado literally means "en-yuca-ed" or "yuca-fied." Starchy yuca holds the cake together, but shredded fresh coconut adds some body and tons of flavor. The cake includes both sugar and cheese, making it sweet and savory at the same time. You can serve it as a side dish with salty soups and stews, or as dessert.
