Bibingkang Malagkit (Sticky Rice Cake)

I guess most of you will agree with me when I say that Filipinos “eat for luck” on New Year’s Eve. Though we believe that everything is all dependent on God’s will, we still practice this tradition which is one of the influences we got from the Chinese. Every New Year’s Eve, we prepare and eat special foods that are believed to bring us riches, long life, love or other kinds of good fortune during the rest of the year. We cook uncut noodles to signify long life. We also prepare sweet delicacies which symbolize a rich, sweet life. Traditional delicacies made from glutinous or sticky rice like this Bibingkang Malagkit are also prepared so good fortune will stick around throughout the year.
This dessert has always been on our dinner table for Media Noche (New Year’s Eve feast) since I was a kid. But this isn’t just for special occasions. It’s a favorite everyday Filipino dessert or snack that’s so good with a cup of coffee. This is almost similar to biko, the only difference is the topping and the color of the cake. Biko has latik (coconut milk curd) for topping and cake is brown in color because brown sugar is used, while bibingkang malagkit has condensed milk and coconut milk for topping and the cake is white.  I will share with you my biko recipe soon. For now, enjoy this bibingkang malagkit that will definitely be a hit for all types of occasions! BibingkangMalagkit13 Bibingkang Malagkit (Sticky Rice Cake)
