Delicious Filipino Desserts

This is "malagkit", one of my favorite snacks back home. It is made from glutinous rice garnished with "latik" or coconut milk residue topped with bits of peanuts and cheese.I am not sure what to call this. It is made of pearl, young coconut, milk, and mango.These are "fresh lumpia" or spring roll with vegies inside, "puto"or rice cake with cheese, and "maja blanca" or coconut pudding.Fried spring roll with gravy. I can't remember the taste now LOL. It must be deliciousThis is a cassava cake made from manioc and in our grocery stores it is called yuca. The Puerto Ricans and Mexicans love to make this too.
When I visited the Philippines last year, I bought these desserts all the time. I would trade the cake and ice cream for these foods, oh yeah.This is "siopao", a steamed Hot Bun, it is actually a dumpling with sweet mongo filling. Some Chinese restaurant here in the US have this "nilusak na saging" which is made from banana with shred of coconut .This is my entry for Yummy Sunday. Thanks for the visit everyone and for stopping by last week. I will see you in your blogs.
