This recipe is a Filipino coconut dessert. My mom taught me this recipe years ago, she made it for my birthday and it was really amazing, this one is pretty special!
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cook: 45 mins
Additional: 10 hrs
- 4 cups uncooked glutinous white rice
- 6 cups cold water
- 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk, divided
- 1 ⅓ cups white sugar
- 1 ⅓ cups brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons coconut preserves (such as Phil Supreme®)
Soak rice overnight in the water.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
Cook the soaked rice over medium heat in a saucepan with the soaking water, 1/2 can of coconut milk, and white sugar, stirring constantly, until tender and thickened, about 20 minutes. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
Stir together the brown sugar, remaining 1/2 can of coconut milk, and coconut preserves in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture carefully over the rice.
Bake in the preheated oven until the topping thickens, about 25 minutes. Cool completely; cut into squares to serve.
