Biko is a new dessert to me, and unless you are Filipino, it’s probably new to you as well. Biko is a coconut sticky rice cake. When I say rice cake, please, please don’t picture those flavorless Styrofoam-like “desserts” enjoyed by dieters all over America. Biko cupcakes are like eating a bowl of brown sugar-topped coconut-flavored oatmeal in cupcake form. Enjoy them warm out of the oven for breakfast or top them with mango sorbet and latik (read my post about latik if that word means nothing to you) as a sweet end to a home-cooked meal.
Biko Cupcake Recipe
This biko recipe comes from Ivory Hut. I’ve reprinted that recipe with my transformation to cupcakes below.
