funny thing about the internet. if you can google it, it will come.
that was a sentence i never thought i’d type! ^_^

anyway, my point being that i wanted to make authentic filipino rice cake, and poof!… i found it with the google. yay!

it’s actually pretty time consuming and technical, you know, for what it is. sweet rice in banana leaves. from what i understand it takes years to master which i’m probably going to have to do because eric really loved my first batch. well, i did too. they were even better the next day.

i’m not going to type the recipe here, but you can grab the version i used from this nifty blog and you would be wise not to skip the story that goes with it.

i miss my lola.

Suman Sa Gata

or Sweet Rice Rolls Wrapped in Banana Leaves

don’t forget to replenish the water as it steams.

my version looks like a candy bar made of rice!
