Bingkasol basically a cross between two famous Filipino rice cakes, the Royal Bibingka and the Espasol
I guess you haven’t heard of this recipe yet, I won’t be surprised because it’s my wife’s creation which she only made a couple of weeks ago. So what is it? Bingkasol basically a cross between two famous Filipino rice cakes, the Royal Bibingka and the Espasol , so I guess you now know where the name comes from.
How does it tasted? Well the first trial was when we brought this in a small Filipino community gathering, when we served it there was a lot of confusion on their faces, I know they cannot decipher what kind of kakanain (rice cake) this is because it looks something new. When they had a bite it even confused them more, some said it was Royal Bibingka some said it was Espasol until I told them what it is. Anyways the bottom line is that they all agreed that it tasted great and it was gone in a matter of seconds.
This recipe was a big hit which means we will be making a lot of this in the future perhaps improving on the recipe like adding coconut strips to give it more of an espasol feel at the same time give a different texture so watch this space.
