Yesterday I finally tried out JMom’s bibingka recipe.
When I read her post about this Filipino dessert, I got so curious because the recipe called for mochiko (rice flour) instead of regular flour. I HAD TO find out what it would taste like when mochiko is mixed with my favorite ingredients like coconut milk and sour cream. So I tried it -- and loved it very much!
Looking at the photo in her bibingka post, I think the texture of hers looks more cake-like. My bibingka turned out pretty mochi-like, and I don’t know if it is the way it is or I made a mistake in conversion again or baking temperature was not correct or something. But I do love the taste. I bet kids would love this dessert with sweet, gentle aroma. It must be even better with banana leaves, which I can only imagine…
I don’t know if this was a weird thing to do, but I enjoyed this dessert with hot fresh lemongrass tea.
Thanks JMom for sharing the recipe! :D
