Growing up in a customary Filipino family, Cassandra Salimeno’s first exposure to baking was a little more involved than Funfetti cake and an Easy-Bake Oven. Instead, the Wyliepalooza owner learned to confect treats true to her roots, like bibingka, a sticky rice cake she ate incessantly at family gatherings as a child. “There are typically three things around when Filipinos get together: rice, bibingka, and karaoke.” Here, Salimeno puts a spin on her grandmother’s original recipe.


•  5 eggs
•  1/2 cup butter, softened
•  1 cup milk
•  1 cup coconut milk
•  1/2 cup condensed milk
•  1 tsp. vanilla
•  3 1/2 cups sweet rice flour
•  1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
•  1 cup brown sugar
•  1 tsp. baking powder
•  1 cup coconut flakes


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Beat the eggs and then combine them with the butter, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix well.
3. Combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and coconut flakes in a separate bowl. Add to wet ingredients and mix well.
4. Pour mixture into a greased 13-by-9–inch pan and bake one hour. Garnish as desired. (Shown here with strawberry topping, coconut ice cream, and whipped cream.)
