  • 2 cups glutinous rice flour
  • 1 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon for dusting
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup evaporated or fresh milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 cup sharp Cheddar cheese
  1. In a large bowl, combine glutinous rice flour, the 1 cup sugar, coconut milk, evaporated milk and eggs. Whisk together until batter is well-blended and smooth.
  2. Generously grease a baking dish (I used a 12-inch cast iron skillet) with margarine. Pour rice batter into dish and tightly cover with foil.
  3. Bake in a 350 F oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is set and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Take out from oven and remove foil. The sides of the rice will be puffed up, just push them down a little to subside. Generously brush top with margarine. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and cheese. Return to oven and bake for another 6 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and top is golden. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely before slicing.
