tikoy macapuno

we served this dessert the weekend we had a lechon night at home. i was wondering what to prepare that day. i wanted to prepare a simple and fast dessert since k would be using the oven. i saw this in mamely's foodblog and it's easy... just combine all the ingredients and pour in a baking dish and put in the oven for an hour. that's all.

this was originally called mochico bibingka by mamely and my friends have different names for it, too. but i'd like to call it tikoy macapuno since it tasted like tikoy only with macapuno. hehehe...

i'm glad that my visitors like it. :p

you can get the recipe here.

1 bag glutinuous rice flour (1 lb.)
1 egg
1 jar macapuno
1 can coconut cream
1/2 can (1cup) water
sesame seeds (optional)

mix everything together, except sesame seeds, and spread in to a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

sprinkle the sesame seeds on top; bake for 1 hour in a preheated 350° oven.

after 1 hour take it out and turn the oven on to broil.

in the meantime, take some melted butter (about 1 tbsp.) and brush the top of bibingka with a pastry brush. return to oven and broil for 2 minutes or until top is browned. keep an eye closely at the tikoy under the broiler. do not leave the kitchen or you'll have a burnt tikoy when you come back.

let cool and slice into squares.

if preferred, you can line baking pan or baking dish with banana leaf making sure to grease the top of leaf before pouring in the mixture.
