Biko is a Filipino rice cake made from sticky rice (locally known as malagkit), coconut milk, and brown sugar. Like other rice cakes, this is referred to as kakanin (derived from the word “kanin” which means rice) and is often eaten as dessert or meryenda (mid-afternoon snack).
Traditionally, this delicious rice cake is placed over banana leaves in a bilao (round weaven bamboo tray) and garnished with latik (cooked coconut milk residue) on top. In addition, Biko is served during special occasions such as birthday parties, family reunions, and town fiestas.

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.

The most wonderful time of the year: the holidays. This is the time of giving and sharing; a time to relax and be with our loved ones; a time to be thankful for all our blessings; and a time to indulge in delicious desserts without feeling the guilt.
The Holidays usually start from Christmas until the New Year. But for some, this starts a few weeks before Christmas and ends a few days after the New Year. Some of you might have had endless Christmas parties and family reunions overflowing with wine and food.
How was your Christmas like in your part of the world? I bet that there were plenty of good food and a lot of smiles and cheers. As for us, we missed white Christmas this year because we went to a warm place wherein we can enjoy nature and go fishing. It feels good to escape the cold weather once in a while.
Latik is a residue of coconut milk. This achieved when coconut milk is cooked in medium heat over a period of time. Latik is commonly used as toppings in rice cakes such as kalamay, sapin-sapin, biko, and maja blanca,
I received an email last night requesting for the procedure in making latik. Since I still have a cup of extra coconut milk from the Bibingka that we featured recently, I opted to make latik out of it.
Just so you know, your requests are queued and I grant each of them depending on the availability of ingredients and my budget as well. Since I already have the extra coconut milk on hand with no plans of using it within the next 2 days, I thought that I better make something out of it rather than to leave it in the fridge until it goes moldy.
