Biko “Inkiwar” (Nilatikan) – Rice Cake

Biko or inkiwar is a native Filipino dessert or “meryenda” which is made of sweet or glutinous rice with rich amount of coconut milk.

Biko is a hit during occasions like fiesta, All Saint’s Day, holy week, birthday lunch or dinner party and the like. I usually put latik as toppings and sometimes, I also put “bukayo” (scraped young coconut, caramelized in brown sugar or “tagapulot”). Here’s my recipe, hope you’ll like it… 🙂
