Bibingka is a sweet rice cake that's popular throughout the Philippines. Different variations exist, but they're almost always a single-layer unfrosted cake that's served as a dessert or for breakfast. This recipe is unique in that the sugar sprinkled on top adds a crunchy caramelized touch.

Cream of coconut can be found in the alcohol aisle in larger markets, and sweet rice flour is in the Asian aisle. (Regular rice flour is OK, but it probably won't have the slight sticky touch this cake is known for.)
