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.¬†
