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♥♥♥
I still have plenty of shrimp left in my fridge and I was thinking to try a new recipe , so I browse the internet and I stumbled on this firecrackershrimps images. I was so excited to try it because honestly I never knew about firecracker shrimps and haven’t tasted one before. I tell you these fried shrimps are seductress to the taste buds and make everyone wanting more after first bite, aka love at first bite ;D
When cooking a meal for my family I really want the best for them and have something new to offer, but sometimes I got too lazy to browse for new recipes that’s why I ended up cooking the recipes I used to cook and one of our favourite viands too. We love anything with coconut milk. And what I like with cooking is that you can easily whip up anything from a set of ingredients to make simple meals just what I did. 🙂
kalabasa (squash), pared, seeded and cut into 2-inch chunks
sitaw (long beans), ends trimmed and cut into 3-inch lengths
1 Combine lemongrass, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper in a large mortar and pestle; grind to a paste.
2 With a small knife, cut small pockets in pork, between the layers of fat and meat.
3 Stuff the herb mixture into the holes. Tie with kitchen twine.
4 Arrange pork pieces in a pot, skin side up, and cover with enough water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
5 Remove pork pieces from pot. Transfer to a rack and let meat dry.
6Deep-fry pork in preheated oil until golden and crisp. Alternatively, you can roast the pork in a preheated 350°F oven or grill over medium hot coals until golden brown. Serve with seasoned vinegar and stir-fried kangkong, if desired.
So happy to share with you my latest new found recipe this is really tasty and easy to make. In fact I never had the chance to take good photos of it. The pork was so good. It was all gone before I knew it. ;).
I accidentally came across this video on YouTube making Chantilly bars. I really don’t have any idea what it taste like so I search more about this kind of dessert unfortunately there were only few post about it. One blogger says it is mind blowing dessert and that makes me more interested and eager to try it. The video on YouTubedidn’t give the complete details on how long and what temperature of the oven I could bake it so I just followed the procedure here Kookie Cooks!
The verdict, well as it was my first time to taste it honestly I don’t like it 😦 . I mean maybe because I don’t usually eat oatmeal and I think that would be my normal reaction as the dessert is not familiar with my taste buds too, but after eating it a few days I think I have come to like it somehow specially if eaten with hot coffee. My husband likes it too and our family friend had the chance to eat it too and she said it’s yummy. So if you are an oatmeal lover then maybe this dessert is for you 🙂 My husband is allergic to nuts so the other one has no toppings. 🙂
Hello everyone! First of all I would like to say thank you to all my followers. I hope you will try some of the recipes here 🙂
Anyway, the recipe that I will share to you now is another Filipino favourite. This is usually served on breakfast together with fried egg & fried rice. Tocino is a sweet cured pork. I got the recipe from Youtube and I love it. My husband loves it too so I hope you could try this sometime. You could watch it here YouTube
.Put all the ingredients in a bowl together with the syrup. Mix it until fully incorporated. Put in the refrigerator and cure for two days.
After the second day, the cured pork can be either pan-fried or grilled. When pan-frying, heat the oil in a large pan over medium-to-high heat. Pan-fry the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until cooked through and browned. Transfer to a plate and continue frying the remaining pork slices. When grilling, grill the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until nicely charred.
Tsampurado or champurrado in Spanish, is a sweet chocolaterice porridge in Philippine cuisine. It is traditionally made by boiling sticky rice with cocoa powder, giving it a distinctly brown color and usually with milk and sugar to make it taste sweeter. It is served usually at breakfast and sometimes together with salty dried fish locally known as tuyo. It can be eaten as a snack or dessert as well.
