Sweet Rice Dessert : Kalamay-Kapit (Sticky Rice Flour in Coconut Milk and Sugar)
  • Glutinous Rice Flour
  • Coconut Milk
  • Anise Seed
  • Banana Leaves(optional)
  • Sugar
  • Ingredients:
  • 1½ cups Glutinous Rice Flour
  • 1 can Coconut Milk (2 cups equivalent), slightly heated
  • ¾ cup Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Anise Seed (optional)
  • Banana leaves (optional)
  • 1 can Coconut Milk – to make Latik topping
  • Banana Leaves
  1. Make the Latik.
  2. Mix the flour, coconut milk and sugar, then strain. Add the anise seed.
  3. Place the mixture on a non-stick skillet and stir until they come together, about 5 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat to low, and add a couple tablespoons coconut oil from the latik.
  5. Flatten to ¼ inch thick and turn or flip over repeatedly every 3-4 minutes, cooking for a total of about 15 minutes.
  6. Set on an oiled banana leaf, cut in serving sizes and top with latik.
  7. Cooking Tips:
  8. Use a non-stick teflon pan for easier cooking and handling.
  9. The recipe starts off as a thick liquid rather than runny so the mix comes together right away during cooking, thus cutting the mixing time in the pan.
  10. I use kitchen shears or scissors to cut the kalamay in serving sizes, so much easier than using a knife.
  11. Try not to use too much coconut oil so your kapit is not too greasy.
  12. Cook on low heat up to 12-15 minutes once the cake comes together to cook the flour thoroughly and to keep the cake from spoilage.
  13. A variation of this recipe is by cutting the cake in cubes and serving in simple sugar syrup.
