  1. Soak rice overnight in the water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Cook the soaked rice over medium heat in a saucepan with the soaking water, 1/2 can of coconut milk, and white sugar, stirring constantly, until tender and thickened, about 20 minutes. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
  4. Stir together the brown sugar, remaining 1/2 can of coconut milk, and coconut preserves in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture carefully over the rice.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the topping thickens, about 25 minutes. Cool completely; cut into squares to serve.

Mmmm…I'm a Filipina and I love biko! I used to make it a lot a few years back. I tried this version and it was good . Thanks for sharing

Perfect. It reunited me with my childhood. I had soaked dried coconut with the rice. Thanks so much for the formula.

I agree with Beya. This recipe could have easily made 2 9x13 pans. I also just used half of the recipe and it made a hefty 9x13 pan. I might use a tad less white sugar next time also. Thank ...

I adjusted to 5 servings, used on 1/2 cup of white and 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and did not use coconut preserve. It was hard to wait until it cooled so that I could take a bite. Not bad for my...

I made this and it came out great

Don't change a thing. It's perfect just the way it is.
