Kalamay Hati is a Filipino rice cake prepared with glutinous rice flour, coconut milk and sugar cooked in a large pan while continuously mixing until it becomes thick and dense until it holds it shape. Once cooked it is topped with latik, a coconut milk curd.




  1. In a non-stick pan combine coconut milk, glutinous rice flour and palm sugar, mix it well until free of lumps.
  2. Place pan in a stove over medium heat, continue mixing while cooking for 50-60 minutes or until mixture can hold its shape. Just a note mixing will get harder and harder as it cooks.
  3. Grease banana leaf with the oil from latik then line it in a round shallow pan, this would fit the 8 – 9 in round pan.
  4. Pour mixture on the pan while still hot then top with latik; let it cool then serve hot or cold.
