Rice Cake

2-1/2 cups glutinous rice
4 cups coconut milk
3/4 cup sugar
banana leaves


2 cups coconut milk
250 g palm sugar or dark brown sugar



Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.

In a pot, combine all rice cake ingredients apart from the banana leaves, bring it to a boil while constantly stirring, then continue simmer while constantly stirring for 15-20 minutes or until the liquid is fully absorbed by the rice.

Line a rectangular dish (11x7x2 in) with banana leaves then pour the cooked rice mixture, flatten and distribute evenly across the dish.

In a sauce pan, combine the coconut mile and palm sugar, cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the liquid has reduced by half.

Pour and spread topping evening onto rice mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Let it cook before slicing and serving.
