Sansrival Cake


Sansrival Cake is a Filipino dessert that originated from San Fernando, Pampanga,so as my friend informed me. This sweet cake takes on a layered presentation of cream filling, nuts and bread or biscuits. I have loved this cake since I was a child so I wanted to try to bake it.

Sansrival Recipe
For Butter Cream Filling:

  • ½ Cup Butter, softened
  • ½ Cup Margarine
  • 1 ¼ Cups Powdered or Confectionary Sugar
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons Vanilla extract

For Base and Nuts:

  • 9 Pcs Graham Crackers
  • ¼ Cup Cashew Nuts, chopped


  1. Filling – Whip butter and margarine until smooth. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until creamy and well-blended. Stir in cashew nuts.
  2. Assemble – Lay a piece of plastic wrap (about 12×11 inches) on working area. Spread about ¼ cup chopped cashew nuts evenly on top of plastic wraps*. Spread thick layer of butter cream facing down, side by side over the nuts. Repeat 2 times to make 3 layers.
  3. Cover the top and sides with a thick layer of butter cream. Leave about 1/3 cup of buter cream for decoration. Cover with plastic wrap to hold.
  4. Chill for 30 minutes. Turn loaf over and unwrap. Serve.

*Use the graham as measurement guide. Chopped nuts should cover length of 3 whole grahams side by side. Use a piping bag to decorate edges of Sansrival with remaining butter cream , you may add about ¼ cup of finely chopped cashew nuts on the side.

    The best sansrival is in San Pablo!!! My aunt is making it even before I was born! Now, almost every resto in manila is buying from her and put their resto name in it. Even a popular actress whose husband was a senator buys thousands every chistmas as gifts to their employees…….
