Bibingkang Malagkit Recipe

Are you a fan of rice cakes? If you liked biko and suman, then you will love this sticky rice cake recipe called Bibingkang Malagkit. This might sound like the delicious bibingka sold during simbang gabi, but it is totally different. This is more of a modified biko, in my opinion. Bibingkang Malagkit can be categorized as a dessert and snack at the same time. Sometimes, it is also eaten for breakfast along with brewed coffee (or kapeng barako). The process of making this tasty rice cake is somewhat complex and tiring, but with this guide, you will be able to easily do the necessary steps.Aside from the usual stove top cooking, we also need to bake this rice cake. You will need a conventional oven to do this. Banana leaves are also nice to have. Our readers in the Philippines won’t have a hard time getting one, but if you live abroad, you may get a pack in most Asian stores. The leaves are sold frozen though; you need to thaw it before using.

Try this Bibingkang Malagkit Recipe and let me know what you think.
