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.

  • 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.

This was very good and texture came out perfect. I followed the recipe as written except reduced the sugar to about 1/2 cup because I was worried it was going to be too sweet with the macapuno strings. Also lined the pan for easy clean up. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was very yummy! I followed the recipe except I only had one jar of macapuno strings. With only one jar, I may reduce the baking time to 35 or 40 minutes next time -- maybe it would be a tad bit less dry. Also, I thought the batter would spill out of a sheet pan, but it didn't. I did, however, line the pan with parchment paper for easy clean up. Read More

Decent recipe but disappointed after baking on a sheet pan as directed, as the bibingka turned out much too thin. Tried the recipe again in a 13 x 9 pan and it yielded a much better (and albeit more traditional) result. Read More
