Homemade Bibingka Recipe ( The Alternative Method)

  • On a large pot mix in the rice flour, water, and salt, adding more water depending on how consistent you want the dough. The dough is already consistent enough once it doesn’t stick to your hands anymore. Reserve the dough for later.
  • Next comes mixing the butter, sugar, beaten eggs and the rice flour dough, salt, baking powder and coconut milk and fresh milk. Mix all of these for five minutes after which you put the mixture on a pan and put it in the oven.
  • After 15 minutes, bring out the pan from the oven and garnish the bibingka with sliced salted egg and grated cheese. Bake the bibingka once again until the top becomes golden brown.
  • Bring the bibingka out of the oven and you have the option to add grated coconut or brush it with melted butter or sugar.
  • Together with puto bumbong, bibingka is perfect with coffee to balance its sweetness.
  • With this bibingka recipe, it is sure that preparing bibingka will now be accessible for you and your family in any season.

Enjoy!
