Coconut Bamboo Rice Bibingka

Coconut Bamboo Rice Bibingka
A variation on the traditional Christmas dessert from the Philippines, ours is made with bamboo rice, which adds a subtle, soft green color. It is a comforting rice cake that tastes excellent with fresh cinnamon sprinkled on top.

2 1/2 pounds bamboo rice
12 ounces coconut milk
1 pound cane sugar
1 can condensed milk


Rinse the rice under cold water and cook according to your preferred method.


Combine the coconut milk and 1 1/4 cups of cane sugar in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Gradually the mixture will thicken. Allow about 20 minutes.


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.


Put the cooked rice into a bowl. Stir the coconut milk mixture and the remaining cane sugar into the hot rice.

Place the entire mixture into a baking pan and pour condensed milk on top and spread around.

Bake for at least 15 minutes, or until the rice is set.


Cut into small pieces and serve warm.
