Biko

I am so craving for some rice cake now, you can’t blame me as I haven’t tried them for quite sometime and now is the payback time. Just imagine I grew up with rice cakes as a part of my daily life as my grandparent always prepare them for merienda (tea time) then in the last 10 years I do barely taste this traditional treats.

So what is biko? It’s a rice cake made out of glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and palm sugar then topped with caramel, latik (a type of reduced coconut cream) or both. It is one of the popular rice cakes in Philippines and usually prepared during special occasions such as family gatherings, parties, holiday season and fiestas.

Compared to other rice cake recipes, you need a bit of patience here but not that much compared to some other intricate rice cakes or traditional treats…
