Christmas is just around the corner. And what’s best about it, is it’s time to eat your favorite bibingka. For us Filipinos, our holiday celebration will not be complete without bibingka. And it’s probably the best time to start learning how to make a special bibingka at home. You can even add any topping of your choice to make it extra special.
Here’s how to make Special Bibingka:

3/4 cups Sugar
1 tbsp. Baking Powder
A pinch of Salt

1 cup Coconut Milk
3/4 cups Evaporated Milk
1/2 cup Macapuno or Young Coconut Meat
Banana Leaves (run through at the stove top or put inside the oven to soften)
1. Using Laon Rice will ensure good quality bibingka. Grind the laon rice to achieve the rice flour.

Note from Delish:
Every Christmas I have to fall in line in some bibingka seller at the plaza just to buy one. So I decided to try making one at home. Though I’m using an oven instead of that conventional improvised charcoal oven, it would still taste the best.
