Sapin-sapin is a layered glutinous rice and coconut dessert in Philippine cuisine. It is made from rice flour, coconut milk, sugar, and food coloring with coconut flakes sprinkled on top.
How to make Sapin-sapin?

- You can use latik as your topping.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the glutinous rice flour and sugar. Mix well.
- Add the coconut milk, condensed milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
- Divide the mixture into three (3) equal parts. Then add the respective food color. (Note: I am using 6 inches circular pan. If you are using a bigger pan, just double the ingredients.)
- Prepare the steamer. Let the water boil.
- Grease the circular baking pan.
- Pour the first part (the violet mixture). Cover the steamer. Steam for 15 minutes.
- Pour the second part (the white / plain mixture) over the violet mixture. Cover the steamer again. Steam for 15 minutes.
- Pour the last part (the yellow mixture) over the white mixture. Cover the steamer again. Steam for 25-30 minutes.
- Remove the Sapin-sapin from the steamer.
- Run a knife around. (Between the sapin-sapin and the baking pan to release smoothly.)
- Turn the baking pan upside down and gently dislodge the sapin-sapin.
- Slice and sprinkle the toppings, then serve.
