    An all-time Filipino favourite dessert. The creamy and sticky texture makes this recipe an irresistible one. You can use any type of cheese, such as cheddar, that suits your taste.

    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 USA and 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!!

    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 USA and Canada)
