For all of VeganMoFo, each Friday in October will be Dessert Friday! This kicks off our themed weekends: Dessert Friday, Saturday Snack, and Sunday Brunch. (I resisted being cutesy and calling them "Saturday Snackday" and "Sunday Brunchday" but it took a lot of willpower, you guys.)
Today's dessert is biko, a Filipino street food. It's easy, foolproof, and gluten-free. The recipe I used came from the Ivory Hut blog, where the author shares a cute story about how as a kid she used to call her mother every day after school asking her to pick up some biko on the way home from work. While I was lucky enough to have a fantastic baker as a mother, I still sorta wish I grew up in a place where this delicious dessert was readily available!
I even found it simple and healthy enough to eat for breakfast over the next couple days, topped with banana slices. I mean, yeah, it's sweet, but so are the majority of breakfast cereals, right? Right.
