Bibingka malagkit

Yet another of my favorite Filipino sweets 😋

Bibingka malagkit

Bibingka malagkit

500 g glutinous (malagkit) rice

1 L water

200-250 g brown sugar

200-250 ml coconut milk

  • Wash and drain the rice. Place in a pan, add the water, and cook for 15-20 minutes (alternatively, you can use a rice-cooker).
  • In a saucepan, combine 140 g of the brown sugar with the coconut milk. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.
  • After the rice has cooked, while still very hot, mix in the remaining brown sugar.
  • Reserve about half a cup of the coconut mixture, then add the rest to the rice. Mix thoroughly.
  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Meanwhile, line the bottom of a baking pan with banana leaves (or baking paper).
  • Place the bibingka «batter» into the prepared baking pan. Top with the reserved coconut mixture.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Then grill for a further 5 minutes.

Makes about 18 squares.
