Bibingka (Philippines)

In the Philippines, Christmas breakfast traditionally includes this sweet and sticky pastry. Bibingka is made of rice flour and coconut milk and is baked in a banana leaf-lined terra-cotta pot and topped with kesong puti (a type of white cheese) and grated coconut. Sometimes a salted duck egg is added to give the pastry a savory element.
