Filipino Dessert: Biko

If you do not know already, I am half Filipino.  I was born in Cebu, Philippines, moved to the states when I was 3 years old, and have gone back to visit 3 times. Every time I go back I have to have biko. Biko is a Filipino dessert with a sticky, chewy and soft texture. It’s literally 3 ingredients minus the water and salt but we know they don’ count :).  If I can’t go back then I usually will ask my mom to make it for me.  But now as a grown adult, I’ve had to fend for myself. 😉 JK, love you mom! But since being on my own I have had these insatiable cravings for some delicious biko. So in an effort to be a self-sufficient adult, I called my mom for the recipe and made my own.  Her recipe is very similar to this one.

This recipe is great for potlucks and especially great for those crazy Filipino parties. If you have never been to a Filipino party and have the opportunity to go, never turn the invitation down. Its always a good time filled with great food and plenty of karaoke.
