Bibingkang Malagkit with Sticky Latik Recipe
This sticky rice recipe is topped with caramelized coconut cream.
Whether you know it as bibingkang malagkit or as biko, this sticky rice recipe is basically sweet squares of steamed rice, sweetened with brown sugar, and usually topped with crispy coconut pebbles, the leftover remnants of simmered coconut cream. It's usually cooked as you would normal rice but with more water since this kind of rice needs more liquid than your everyday rice.
We cooked this kakanin in a rice cooker, transfer the softened cooked sticky rice to mamon tins, and top each with a heaping spoonful of latik or coconut jam. Then we toasted them in a toaster oven. What you get are crisp edges with a spectacular, irresistible pool of latik in the center.
