Bibingka (a.k.a. Butter Mochi) is a traditional food that is usually eaten around Christmas time in the Philippines. This snack is usually sold outside the churches during the nine-day novena for believers to have breakfast. This recipe was adapted and enjoyed in my family and I hope to share it with others.

This is for any aspiring Bibingka maker looking to prepare a delicious, satisfying breakfast, snack or dessert.

As an aspiring Bibingka manufacturer, you know how to operate a hand mixer, conventional oven and stove, how to open cans, how to mix things and how to open a milk bottle. You might want to impress your friends, frenemies, co-workers and family members while knocking their taste buds off with a delicious, yet authentic Filipino preparation.

I'll walk you through the ingredients and tools required, how to set up the cooking utensils for the first time, instructions for mixing and preparing different ingredients, the order in which the ingredients are broken down into different stages, baking instructions and suggestions.

I intend for you aspiring Bibingka makers to use these recipe instructions to ultimately eat Bibingka, but if you feel like you are using Bibingka to build gelatinous buildings then you definitely have power. Hope you photograph all of the architectural feats with sticky rice flour for breakfast.

Equipment:

Step 1: Ingredients Required

Dry ingredients

1 pound (16 oz) glutinous rice flour

2-2 ½ cups of sugar (depending on how sweet you want)

1 teaspoon Baking powder

Wet ingredients

1 can of coconut milk (the higher the fat content, the better)

1 ½ cups of coconut milk, whole milk or almond milk

5 eggs

½ cup butter or margarine (preferably Land O’Lakes)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 2: Tools Needed

Traditional oven and stove (or microwave)

9x13 inch glass or metal pan

measuring cup

Teaspoon measuring tool

tin opener

1 large mixing bowl

1 cereal bowl

1 medium saucepan (or microwaveable container that holds at least 3 cups of liquid)

Electric hand mixer

Large spoon or silicone spatula

Fork or whisk

Step 3: preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare a 9x13 glass or metal pan.

A metal pan has crispy edges, so it is best not to grease the pan. However, if your pan isn't that good, you may need to.

Step 4: mix wet ingredients

Add sugar, 1 can of coconut milk, 1½ cup coconut milk, whole milk or almond milk, ½ cup butter or margarine and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to the medium saucepan or microwave-safe container.

Step 5: warm up the wet ingredients

Heat the ingredients until the butter has melted.

Stir occasionally to make sure the mixture doesn't burn.

Keep the mixture warm by simmering it on the stove or microwaving it for 30 seconds by the time you reach step 6.

Make sure it doesn't boil over!

Step 6: prepare dry ingredients

Place 1 pound of sticky rice flour and 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a large mixing bowl and mix with a large spoon or silicone spatula.

Step 7: combine wet and dry ingredients

Take the liquid mixture and gradually pour it into a large mixing bowl with rice flour and baking soda.

Mix well with the electric hand mixer.

Use the large spoon or silicone spatula to scrape the sides occasionally to make sure all of the dry powder is well mixed.

Step 8: beat eggs

Whisk 5 eggs in a cereal bowl with a fork or whisk.

Be sure to wash your hands after handling eggs!

Step 9: add eggs to the mixture

Using the hand mixer, stir the eggs into the large mixing bowl until the entire mixture is smooth.

Make sure there are no lumps in the mixture.

Step 10: pour into the pan

Pour the mixture into a 9x13 pan.

Use the large spoon or silicone spatula to scrape the excess mixture into the pan.

Step 11: put in the oven and bake

Put the pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Be sure to wear an oven glove to avoid burns!

Step 12: check and rotate

After 30 minutes, the mixture should smell sweet and be light yellow in color.

Be sure to wear an oven glove to avoid burns!

Turn the pan 180 degrees in the oven and put it back in for another 30 minutes.

Step 13: finish baking

Take out the finished Bibingka.

Step 14: suggestions for enjoyment

Eat it right away, leave it on the counter, or put it in the refrigerator. It really depends on how tough you want it to be.

Serve with vanilla ice cream, toasted coconut flakes or a layer of sweetened condensed milk.
