Bibingkang Malagkit (Rice Cake)

Bibingkang Malagkit (Rice Cake) is a very popular dessert to make on holidays.  There are different ways of making rice cake, some mix the coconut milk during the process of cooking the rice. The process of making bibingkang malagkit is a little bit different than the normal rice cake.  On this recipe, I let the rice boiled with four cups of water and 1 can of the coconut milk (about 14 fl oz).  Cooking the rice is not hard at all, but you have to pay attention that the bottom won’t get burn.

Once the rice goes into boil adjust your heat to a medium.  Remember to stir it every now and then, if you need to add some water do so.  Usually, adjust my heat to medium, and when the liquid is gone I turn it to low.  Start making your topping, that way by the time your rice is done cooking for the second time your topping is ready. From the time it started boiling until it was cook it took about 45 minutes for the rice to cook.

Making the topping is going to take awhile, probably about 1 hour or so, depends really.  You want the topping to caramelize that way it won’t look like water down on the top of your glutinous rice. Start your time once the mixture started boiling not from the time you added to the skillet.

Mine started boiling at 10:30 then I adjusted the heat to medium. I know the process is long that’s why I don’t make this often but on some occasion only.  However, the aftermath of this cooking is going to be very delicious and you will get a lot of compliments. It took me about 55 minutes to finished making the toppings, I have leftovers which is not big deal.

In a non-stick skillet add ¼ cup of the coconut milk you set aside earlier.  Then add the glutinous rice and the white sugar and mix very well.  Let the mixture cook for about 5 minutes, mixing it constantly. Once it’s finished cooking, transfer the mixture to the pyrex, spread about 4 tablespoons of your topping mixture in the bottom of the pyrex so the glutinous rice won’t stick. Top the glutinous rice with the caramelized sauce you made, at this time you can just let this sit and serve it later.  However, you can also put this in the oven for about 3 minutes broil it.
