Description: ‘Kakanin’ is a filipino sweet made with glutinous rice flour.  It’s popular during Christmas time and great as an afternoon 'merienda’ or snack.  This particular kakanin is the thing I miss most when I’m in London, it’s red rice sweet called 'kutsinta’ and my late grandmother used to give this sweet to me as a child growing up in my home town of 'Malabon’.


We FILIPINOS love  to eat “kakanin”……

Kakanin or Native Delicacies are integral part of the Filipino food culture.

Uniquely Filipino, these are sweet munchies or sometimes desserts made from rice, sweet rice or root vegetables that are slow cooked and usually made with coconut or coconut milk.
