Pininat is a type of bibingka prepared with glutinous rice flour, coconut milk and macapuno strings, a popular rice cake from Pangasinan. Pininat’s name came from the word “pinat” which means to stretch. Stretchy? Yes hence the name, but to describe its texture in detail this is gooey and chewy like most rice cakes. It’s one of the simplest rice cakes to make, almost similar to cassava cake but instead of cassava, glutinous rice flour is used.
