RECIPE: Bibingka

This is a quick and easy bibingka recipe not just for the Christmas Season but all year round. Luckily, I was able to satisfy my bibingka cravings thanks to The Maya Kitchen for sending me some boxes of bibingka mix.



Maybe its the weather, or maybe its because its Christmas Season already that having bibingka for merienda comes to mind. And because daughter and I doesn't have much to do (thanks to typhoon Ruby), we decided to spend time in the kitchen to bake some bibingka for merienda.

Ingredients:

Maya Bibingka Mix, 1 small box
1 egg, medium sized
1 tbsp butter
water
vanilla butter (optional)
1 salted egg, sliced thinly
muscovado sugar
grated coconut

It was quite easy to do, simply follow the instruction at the back of the box. However, I added some vanilla butter to enhance the flavor, added some salted egg, and instead of banana leaves, I used wax paper.

We cooked it in the oven-toasted for about 15-20 minutes. I generously coated the bibingka with butter, added the remaining slices of salted egg, and sprinkled some muscovado sugar. It would've tasted better if I have some grated coconut but its okay. Hubby and daughter enjoyed the bibingka.

  5. Oooh I've seen Maya bibingka mix but I haven't considered buying one...maybe because I wasn't sure it would taste the same? Besides, Bibingka is awesome when it's piping hot. But maybe I'll take your word for it and serve my kids a taste of local Christmas. ;)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
