Glutinous rice flour gives Ilocano royal bibingka a bouncier texture than traditional bibingka, similar to Hawaiian butter mochi. After baking, the cakes are brushed with melted butter and topped with grated cheese and white sugar. A quick broil turns the topping into a toasty, cheesy crown. We use a mix of cheddar and salty Parmesan to complement the sweet cake.
