When I was growing up surrounded by family, mostly all were Filipino, this yummy dessert was called Bibinka. It’s soft and sticky in the middle with a bit of coconutty crust on top.
When my family moved to Hawaii back in the late 1970’s what we called Bibinka was called Butter Mochi. They are essentially the same thing and whatever you call it it’s delicious!
I looked up the recipe for both Butter Mochi and Bibinka and they are very similar. In fact when I make it I often interchange the recipes. My kids and grandkids love it which ever recipe I use.
Both ingredients use Sweet Rice Flour which can be purchased at an Asian Market. They also so use coconut milk which again can be purchased at the Asian Market.
