About this recipe: An all-time Philippine favorite. The creamy and sticky texture makes this recipe an irresistible one. Use any type of semi-soft or hard grated cheese, such as cheddar, that suits your taste.
Cassava, also known as Manioc, tapioca or yucca, can be found in Filipino or Latin American food stores. Usually sold frozen and grated. Mix together the cassava with the coconut milk, melted butter and eggs. Stir in the white sugar, salt, vanilla, cheese and lemon rind.
I am also from the Phils. where this cassava (a kind of root crop) is abundant. And cheap. I made this on my husband's small b-day party treat with some of our closefriends and churchmates. They really raved about it. Somebody even asked me how much I am going to sell this to them should they order from me. Really yummy. Can't forget the creamy taste. Two thumbs up! Thanks Chinky, for sharing this wonderful recipe. I might try your puto bread too. - 17 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

I use only: eggs, sugar,mochi flour,melted butter, baking powder,coconut milk,evaporated milk,and vanilla!! I did not use cheese at all! This is a very sweet dessert!! I make it so much that I have learned it by heart!*_* I am sure you will love This Babingka as well as "CHINKYS BIBINGKA" also this is very easy!

Not really what I would consider bibingka. The base of bibingka is rice flour..and since this did not have any in it, it was more of a cassava cake. As far as cassava cakes go...this was o.k. A bit too sweet for my liking. - 16 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
