I saw this blog that brought my mind back to the Christmas tradition of the Philippines. Much like the Spaghetti ala Makati Supermarket’s famous meal, look into this recipe from “Pinoy Food | Free Filipino Food Recipe” and savor the taste that’s truly Filipino.

By the way, this blog has a Kindle version, in case some of you are “Kindlers.”

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs, well-beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups coconut milk (2nd or more presses; see separate recipe)
  • 1/4 cup melted margarine
  • 2 tbsps. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup coco cream (first press)
  • 1/4 cup sugar for topping

Instructions:

1. Add sugar to beaten eggs.

2. Combine salt and rice flour; add to egg mixture.

3. Add melted margarine and baking powder.

4. Pour into banana-leaf lined mold.

My sister’s note: Tita Mimi assumes we know that the banana leaves have to be wilted, that is, passed over an open flame on the stove top.

5. Bake in 375 degree Fahrenheit oven.

6. Brush top with coco cream and sugar; bake until golden crust is formed.

note: Tita Mimi doesn’t say when to take out the bibingka to brush the top with the coco cream and sugar. I would assume that this is done when the bibingka is 3/4’s done (so the batter doesn’t flop). We would have to experiment on time frames.

7. Makes 3 large bibingkas.
