a pinch of salt
2 tbsp coconut oil
Coconut Caramel Sauce:

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup condensed milk

Wash glutinous rice and drain. Add enough water to cover rice and soak for at least 2 hours. Drain water and place in a cooking pot.
Pour 2 cups of water on the rice. Then, add in coconut milk powder, brown sugar, salt, and coconut oil. Stir and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Once boiling, you can reduce heat to lowest and let it simmer. Stir it continually until the texture thickens and becomes sticky. Turn off heat.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Grease your baking dish with oil. Then, transfer the sticky rice to the baking dish and spread evenly. Set aside.
Prepare your Coconut Caramel Sauce:
In a sauce pan, combine the coconut milk powder, water, sugar, and coconut oil and stir. Heat the pan under low temperature and bring to a boil. Continue to simmer the sauce while stirring occasionally until it thickens. Turn off heat.
Pour and spread the caramel sauce over the prepared bibingka rice on your baking dish. Then, bake for about 10 minutes or until the topping becomes firm.
Serve and enjoy!
