  3. Cook the soaked rice over medium heat in a saucepan with the soaking water, 1/2 can of coconut milk, and white sugar, stirring constantly, until tender and thickened, about 20 minutes. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
  4. Stir together the brown sugar, remaining 1/2 can of coconut milk, and coconut preserves in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture carefully over the rice.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the topping thickens, about 25 minutes. Cool completely; cut into squares to serve.

Mmmm…I'm a Filipina and I love biko! I used to make it a lot a few years back. I tried this version and it was good . Thanks for sharing

Perfect. It reunited me with my childhood. I had soaked dried coconut with the rice. Thanks so much for the formula.

I adjusted to 5 servings, used on 1/2 cup of white and 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and did not use coconut preserve. It was hard to wait until it cooled so that I could take a bite. Not bad for my...
