This one is very easy to do. Palitaw is a Tagalog term for this dessert or snack. In Aklan, we have our own version. My mother used to make this as quick snacks although she called it differently and instead of rolling the cake into white coconut flakes, she used bukayo (sweetened coconut flakes in brown sugar) as topping. I forgot how she called it though - I think inday-inday. I never thought that this was easy to do - but it is.


Sweet rice flour - about a cup.
3/4 cup water
coconut flakes
Lots of white sugar
Toasted linga (sesame seeds).

Mix rice flour with water to make dough. Make little balls then flatten. Boil water in a saucepan. Drop flattened dough balls into boiling water. The cakes are cooked when they float. Remove from water, let cool a little bit, roll in combined sugar and toasted sesame seeds and coconut flakes.

That's it.
