There’s a famous tradition in the Philippines that dates back all the way to the Spanish Era where Catholics buy Filipino delights like Puto Bumbong or Bibingkang Bigas after they’ve attended the Misa de Gallo or Simbang Gabi. These two desserts have already been the comfort food of Filipinos during the Christmas seasons especially since they’re found within the vicinity of churches and chapels.

Moreover, the cooking procedures are also beginner-friendly so anyone who’s craving bibingka can easily make it at home. Alright? Then let’s begin! To start, the ingredients we’ll need are glutinous flour, rice flour, baking powder, butter, coconut milk, eggs, salted duck egg, cheese, salt, white sugar, and of course, banana leaves. Aside from being the bibingka’s serving dish, the banana leaves’ aroma also provides an extra flavor to the dish.
Now let’s go to the cooking procedures! The first thing that you need to do is to preheat the cooking pan to 375 F before preparing all of the ingredients. After that, we shall now thoroughly combine all of the dry ingredients in one clean bowl including the rice flour, baking powder, and salt. Next, mix all of the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl such as coconut milk, sugar, eggs, and butter. Make sure to stir well to incorporate all of the ingredients with each other. Finally, gradually pour the mixture of wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and continue mixing until all of them are mixed well.
Now, it’s time to prepare the molds for the individual servings of bibingkang bigas. Carefully place the cut banana leaves on the molders and arrange them accordingly. Pour the bibingka mixture into the molder then add some sliced cheese and salted duck eggs for the toppings. Bake the mixture in the cooking pan for at least 30 minutes until it’s well-done. For best results, you can always add more cheese and grated coconuts!
