So simple and yet so delicious to satisfy that sweet tooth craving. Bibingka, or as I like to call it “Balokbakba”, is a Filipino sweet cake. The varieties are endless using so many types of ingredients. Add Malagkit, sweet sticky rice, to the equation and you now have a sweet rice cake-Bibingka Malagkit.
Usually my craving for something sweet hits head on around 7pm but I never feel like waiting for the rice to cook or/and having to bake it so I save it for another day. This time however, I wised up and made it for lunch, that way it would be ready for the evening attack. There are many different ways to make this Filipino dessert, so I accredit this great recipe to my sister!
Delicious Rating: Easy recipe to make & bake & clean-up is a breeze. It is Delicious through and through. Seriously, I wish one of the tiers on my wedding was Babingka! It is that good. Simply Delicious…

This recipe doesn’t require many ingredients nor a lot of time.
I cook the rice in water but if you want to up that coconut flavor, cook the rice in half coconut milk and water.
Take the reserved rice in a bowl and pour the reserved sauce along with it. Eat and enjoy while the rice cake bakes. I love it both ways but I have to say that the rice with the sauce is definitely a Yummy Yummy Time!
That ring of sugar around the inside of the baking dish is delicious btw. I was thinking that Bibingka Malagkit would probably be the bomb with some vanilla ice cream too. I did not have any so I will have to try it next time. I ate about half the dish and then a piece with my coffee for breakfast the next day. Mmmmhhhhhhh….For Reals
It will firm up a lot in the fridge or once cooled at room temperature.
