Suman at Latik

Suman or rice cake has many variations, but the most popular is the suman with latik. Its preparation starts by soaking the sticky rice in the water for about three hours before wrapping in banana leaves. It is then boiled until the rice is cooked. For the latik, you can just buy coco jam in the grocery store or make your own, it’s just a coconut milk simmered.

Alternatively, you can make your own suman with our suman recipe.

Bibingka

Bibingka is another type of rice cake that most Filipinos loved. Contrary to the other versions of rice cakes, which are easy to make, the preparation of bibingka is a bit complicated and time consuming. But despite this, it’s still a bestseller during early cold mornings after every Simbang Gabi.

It usually comes in three colors: yellow is ripe jack fruit–flavored, the violet one is ube-flavored, while the white one is just a plain coconut milk.
