1. Boil coconut   milk with sugar, butter and spices for about 15 minutes.   This should produce 8 cups of liquid.   Reserve ½ cup of this liquid, and mix the remainder  of it with the cassava, until combined.

2. Place the cassava mixture into a greased rectangular baking pan.

3. Bake at 400°F for about 30 minutes.

4. Reduce heat to 350°F, and bake for approximately another 2 hours.

5. Meanwhile, add 1-tablespoon butter to the reserved liquid; simmer it on the stove until it reaches a syrup consistency. Use this syrup to periodically baste the top of the heavy cake with a pastry brush while it is baking.   This will give the top of the cake a rich glossy colour.
