These are FEW of my FAVORITE things - KAKANIN

I remembered when I was a child, when our rented apartment is five minutes away from the public market, my mom used to go to the market early in the morning almost everyday and comes home with a pasalubong at hand - Kakanin most of the time. I missed eating freshly cooked kakanin. Carb and sugar Overload! That's what you'll get if you are fond of eating few of the best Filipino Kakanin!

What is/are your favorite kakanin? Here are some of my favorites.

Kakanin OverLoad

PALITAW. Made from glutinous rice covered with shredded coconut meat. What made it more delectable is the sugar that comes with it. You can sprinkle the sugar on your Palitaw or you roll the Palitaw on the sugar before putting it on your mouth, either way is fine. I prefer the latter though. Now I am salivating.

PUTO. Steamed rice cake, eaten as is or with butter and/or grated fresh coconut or as accompaniment to a number of savory dishes for breakfast. As a personal favorite, I love pairing it with DINUGUAN.

BIKO. Rice is the main ingredient for this delicacy. Sweetened Rice Cake you may call, you will often get a served of this during All Souls Day. 

MAJA BLANCA. Made from coconut milk, cornstarch, and sugar. Often called Coconut Pudding, this luscious dessert is easy to make and the ingredients are very common here in the Philippines. Maja Blanca becomes extra special if you add corn kernels and top it with cheese. Yum.yum.
