out of the blue..

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 .. ☺♥☺



Bibingka Recipe

2 cups rice flour
1/2 cup glutinous rice flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
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♥♥♥

Cassava cake

Another Filipino dessert and also one of my favorites. This was my second time to bake cassava. I’ve baked before using other  recipe unfortunately it is not successful, though I love the taste, but something went wrong maybe because I did not thoroughly defrosted my frozen grated cassava well,  so impatient of me.  But I will try it again as soon as I’m in the mood to bake it. But for now I’m sharing another recipe of cassava cake which I found very easy, simple recipe unlike the other one who requires more ingredients. What I love about this recipe is that it is not so sweet, but very delicious in fact my husband complimented my cake 🙂 Hope you can try this too. Note that this will takes a longer time in baking because of the denseness but I will tell you it is worth waiting for 🙂 Thanks to TulipFleurs  for sharing the recipe.


2 packages Frozen Grated Cassava

1 Bottle Macapuno (Coconut Strings)

1 Can Condensed Milk (not evaporated)

1 Can Coconut Milk

¼ Cup Butter (softened) to be used in greasing the pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and pour in a greased  pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until top is lightly browned.

Note: I baked mine for 1 hour and 30 minutes, I think it depends on the oven 😉

I’ve found another delicious recipe for cassava cake, in fact this has been my favourite :).

  • 1 ½ 14-oz. can condensed milk
  • 1 14-oz. can coconut cream
  • 1 12-oz. can evaporated milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar (If you want it sweeter, you can double the amount of sugar)
  • ½ can condensed milk
  • 1 egg
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a small bowl, mix ½ can condensed milk and 1 egg. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, mix all cake ingredients thoroughly.
4. Transfer to a lightly greased baking dish or pan. Bake for 1 hour.
5. Pour the condensed milk and egg mixture on top of the cassava cake. Bake for 20 minutes more or until desired brown color is achieved.
