I have some Fufu Flour
. It intrigues me. What, besides its obvious use, can I do with it?

So I bought this box of fufu flour a few weeks ago but haven't got around to actually making any stews that one would traditionally use this with. However, I would really love to know if I can use this in other culinary ways. I'm gluten intolerant so it's always exciting to find something I can substitute for wheat. Fufu is a blend of cassava, plantain, & potato flours.
Can I use fufu flour in baking? If so, does anyone have ideas on recipes, proportions or any required additives to maximize its success rate? How about other uses; oh, I don't know... like breads or wraps, custard-y desserts, drinks, anything. I'm intensely craving chocolate cake right now and am low on gf flour so it would really blow my skirt up if chocolate fufucake is a possibility.
Yeah, I know I can use it to make dumpling-y things and breading with. It says that on the box. I'm interested in more diverse recipes. Googling has been unhelpful. And technically, yes I could experiment & come up with my own recipes, but lack of spare time and an unwillingness to waste the contents of my cupboards on any unsuccessful attempts, leads me to you and your interesting little recipe boxes O Hivemind. Thanks in advance!
