Simple Bibingkang Malagkit is the same good sticky rice treat enjoyed by Filipinos, except that this version is prepared in a simpler way — and it does not require too much stirring.
As described above, I am sharing another Bibingkang Malagkit recipe that is as good as the first one, but this won’t give your arms a hard time stirring continuously.
I have to say that this is a more convenient way to make Bibingkang Malagkit. I can simply leave this cooking in the oven and do other things such as cooking another dish (I am craving for Mechado today) or doing house chores. Between the two, I like cooking better.
How to Make Simple Bibingkang Malagkit
Start by cooking the sweet rice or malagkit. I simple combine the rice with water and cook it in a rice cooker. I check it once in a while to see if the rice absorbed all the water. When this happens, it means that I am ready to move to the next process.
At this point, you can now pre-heat your oven so that it will be warm enough soon.
Grab a mixing bowl and pour-in the coconut milk, coconut cream, salt, sugar — it is basically all the ingredients except the rice and water. Give it a good stir. Once you think that all the ingredients are properly combined, you can do two things. The first is to arrange the rice in a baking pan and pour-in the coconut milk mixture. You can stir it some more once everything is on the baking pan to ensure that all the ingrdients are distributed. The second option is to scoop the cooked rice into the mixing bowl that has the coconut milk mixture and stir everything in there. Simple pour the contents of the mixing bowl to the baking pan when ready and then bake it in the oven.
