Homestyle cooking of Filipino delicacies and desserts are passed from generation to generation. We improvise these days but the natural method is still being used.

Tiempo de Prep:
Tiempo para Cocinar:


  • 1 1/2 cups malagkit dough (galapong)
  • 1/2 cup rice galapong
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 cups cooked ubi (mashed)
  • grated coconut
  • 1 cup thick coconut cream
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • food coloring; violet & egg-yellow


  1. Blend all ingredients except mashed ubi and food coloring.
  2. To one part – add mashed ubi. To heighten the color of the ubi, add a dash of violet food coloring. Mix well.
  3. To 2nd part – add egg-yellow coloring. Mix well.
  4. To 3rd part – just plain white, nothing to add.
  5. Grease a round baking pan. Line with banana leaves and grease the leaves. Then, pour in ubi mixture. Spread evenly. Steam for 30 minutes or more, until firm. Note: cover the baking pan with cheese cloth before steaming.
  6. Pour 2nd layer on top of the cooked ubi. Cover again and steam for 30 minutes.
  7. Lastly, pour in 3rd layer or the plain mixture. Again, steam for 30 minutes or until firm.
  8. Meanwhile, fry the grated coconut until brown and put on top of the sapin-sapin as 'bud-bud' (sprinkles)
  9. Cool before slicing into serving pieces.

    Hi Shalina! I love reading your recipes.
    I am not familiar with these ingredients but this seems to be a steamed pudding (Budino) dessert?
    Looks good..I wish I could try a slice of that!
