Yesterday, I posted my own (personally developed) recipe on royal bibingka if you missed it, you can check it our her - royal bibingka.  

Since, "All Souls' day and All Saints' day are fast approaching, and it is part of Filipino tradition to serve traditional rice cakes (kakanin) during these occasions, here is another bibingka recipe you can try.

Bibingka,  are one of the many Filipino native delicacies that are made from rice flours and coconut milk.  Bibingka is usually serve during special occasions like pista ng mga patay (all souls' day), holy week, Christmases, and New Year celebrations.  It is almost similar to the muffins of the Western cuisine as bibingka has almost the same crumb texture as quick breads, are also chemically leavened, and are also cooked in dry heat.

Bibingka, as earlier mentioned are made from rice flours and coconut milk, other ingredients includes milk and cheeses, and they are "baked" the traditional way, that is, the rice batter is placed on a bibingka molder made of clay, cooked on top and under live charcoals.  With the availability of modern cooking equipment, however, bibingka are now baked inside ovens with temperatures that can easily be controlled.  

I never had the chance of making bibingka even to this moment.  I only buy them.  I love bibingka specially those topped with grated cheese and salted eggs.
