Feeling oddly industrious last Saturday morning, I rummaged our kitchen shelves for something easy to busy myself with (besides playing with the cutest dog ever)
. Shortly after, I had a small box of Maya Oven Toaster Bibingka
cake mix in my hands and I was raring to make my own homemade bibingka
|Ingredients for homemade bibingka
The recipe on the box seemed easy enough. Aside from the mix, I only needed 1 chicken egg, 1 red egg/salted duck egg (optional), 2 tablespoons of melted butter, half a cup of water, and some grated cheese (optional). Easy! All those can be found in my fridge on any given day.
It’s an oven toaster mix, of course you’d need an oven toaster and also a regular baking pan. I opted to use a cupcake pan to end up with mini-bibingkas (like those you can get from food courts)
instead of just one chunk of bibngka
. Luckily, I still had some cupcake paper cups from last week’s two minute microwave cupcakes

What to do:
First, crack open the red egg and chop them up into small cubes (you can also opt to just slice them thinly, chopping is much easier) and set it aside. Grate some cheese (I love cheese so I used lots) and then set that aside.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix the bibingka mix, water, butter, and some of the grated cheese for good measure. Place the paper cupcake cups in the cupcake pans and distribute the mixture equally. Sprinkle the chopped up red eggs and grated cheese (the more the merrier!) on top of each cup. And then put the pan inside your oven toaster and set it to cook for five minutes.

Then you can do a quick clean up of the mess you made and as soon as you’re done, your bibingkas will be ready to go. Fresh off the oven are your fluffy and delightful homemade bibingkinitans. They are surprisingly fluffly (much fluffier than the microwave cupcakes) and actually taste like those heartwarming bibingkas you can only get during Christmas season. I will definitely be doing this again.
