What would your kids say if they came home from school and you have hot, freshly baked bibingka for their merienda? They will probably think you bought it right? Well, now you can honestly say that you made it yourself.
Yesterday I received two big boxes of goodies from my friend who makes all these locally made goodies. I’m already very familiar with Galinco’s line of cookies and gulaman but I’ve never tried their native kakanin line under the brand Sarap Pinoy.
Even if you don’t have fancy molds like this you can even use a rectangular or round aluminum pan. We baked it in an oven toaster.
I found this in Unimart. The bibingka mix cost P54.95 a box.
With the success of our first ready mix we tried the maja blanca and kutsinta mixes next. I also wanted to try the guinataang bilo-bilo mix but we didn’t have saba, langka and sago on hand.
I had no idea how kutsinta was made but the instructions were pretty straightforward. Dissolve the contents of the pack and add 1 cup of water. How simple can that be?
My cook used mini muffin molds.
It’s a good thing it fitted in our steamer.
After 35 minutes we had kutsinta that tasted just like store bought kutsinta. Admittedly I’m not a big fan of this sticky rice cake but this tasted very authentic.
The Maja Blanca was our last creation.
My cook just added some canned sweet corn and the contents of the packet with water and heated the mixture in a pan. Another easy peasy instant dessert.
The texture and flavor of this corn and coconut pudding was spot on. Not too sweet and just the right amount of creaminess.
I was very pleased with results of all these ready mixes from Galinco. Obviously my favorite was the bibingka. I always thought if I had to live abroad bibingka is one of the Filipino food that I will miss. Now I can actually bring bibingka with me wherever I go. This would be a great gift for balikbayans.
Hide the boxes and show off your inner Nora Daza and impress your whole family with these all time favorite Filipino treats. All these products are available at your favorite supermarkets in the baking ingredients aisle.

The mixes are available in the following supermarkets : Unimart, Landmark, SM, Pioneer Center, Robinsons and others.
The kutsinta mix didn’t turn out right when I cooked it. I did notice the box said wheat flour on it instead of rice.
