FoodTripFriday #6: My Biko For Easter!


I hope you all had a wonderful Easter last Sunday! As for me and my family, it went really great! We started out our day by attending the Easter Sunday mass and then the kids had a little egg hunting afterward. My oldest son had a blast, he got an Easter basket from the Easter bunny full of some good stuff! He loved everything in it!

Anyhow, for Easter I made some Biko. I would have preferred making "Binignit" but I did not have all the ingredients to make it. Anyway, it was my second time making biko, the first time was a big failure and I thought the second one is gonna be another failure but I was wrong. After I had mixed up the caramelized coconut milk and sugar with the sticky or glutinous rice, it was still a little wet. 

When I got it off the stove and let it cooled down it turned out to be just fine! I was really glad that I made it right this time. I shared it with my filipina friend who live nearby to us and she liked it a lot and even my mother-in-law who is a very picky eater when it comes to food that she is not familiar with, she really liked it too! I was gonna make another batch but forgot to buy coconut milk yesterday and I want to make "puto maya" next time too!
