A very coconutty and chewy rice flour dessert. Traditionally, this is baked in banana leaves, but my family prefers the crispy edges, which is why I use a sheet pan. I have been testing out several types of chewy desserts using rice flour, and this seems to be the favorite.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 12x17-inch rimmed baking sheet.

  • Beat condensed milk, coconut milk, and melted butter together in a large mixing bowl until combined. Add eggs, 1 at a time, and beat until combined. Add macapuno, 1 jar at a time, and beat until combined. Gradually beat in mochiko flour. Beat in brown sugar; beat in vanilla extract. Pour batter onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown and sides are slightly dark brown, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • Allow to cool, about 20 minutes, before loosening the sides and cutting into squares.

Cook's Note:

For an optional topping, mix together 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk and egg yolk. Spread topping on 20 minutes prior to being done.
