I bake this bibingka out of the blue… I was just doing my daily routine that day and then suddenly I have this urge to bake something . So I prepared all the ingredients and whisk everything,bake and voilà .. ☺♥☺
2 cups rice flour
1/2 cup glutinous rice flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar, more for sprinkling on top of the cakes
1-1/2 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup butter, melted, and more for brushing cakes
pieces banana leaves
salted egg, sliced
grated coconut (optional)
grated Edam or cheddar cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line pans or ramekins with banana leaves or wax paper .
Whisk together rice flour, glutinous rice flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
Beat eggs in a bowl. Add sugar and beat well. Add butter. Alternate adding flour and coconut milk. Beat until just blended. Do not over beat the batter.
Divide the batter equally into the pans. Lay slices of salted egg on top and set the cakes on the top rack of the oven. Bake until the cake is cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Turn the broiler to low and broil the cakes to brown the top for about a few minutes. Watch cakes carefully to keep them from burning.
Brush the cakes with butter and sprinkle with sugar, grated coconut, and grated cheese. Serve warm.
Note: I want my cheese melted so I put mine 3 minutes before I take out my bibingka from the oven. My husband loves it very much that he told me to sell it to our Filipino friends ☺ I’m a happy baker♥♥♥
