How to Prepare Bibingkang Malagkit: Filipino Rice Cake With Caramelized Coconut [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
- In a non-stick pot, combine glutinous rice and 4 cups of coconut milk, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer gently while occasionally mixing to cook them evenly and not burn the bottom. Let the mixture thicken until it’s nearly dried out.
- Add sugar and salt then mix continuously over low heat for 10 minutes. At this stage, it will be really sticky.
- Line a 9x13-inch baking tray with banana leaf then transfer the cooked glutinous rice. Set it aside.
- Prepare your topping by mixing all topping ingredients together in a saucepan, bring it to a boil and simmer over medium heat uncovered until heavily reduced, but still runny.
- Pour topping over the rice cake in the baking pan then bake in a 355°F preheated oven for 20 minutes or until topping becomes really thick and dark (not burnt). Remove from oven then set it aside to cool down.
- Serve warm.
