The Filipino word kakanin comes from kanin (rice) which also means to eat. Kakanin are typically made of various forms of regular rice and glutinous or sticky rice which are soaked in water and ground.Then combined with coconut milk and sugar, some with salt. They are either baked, boiled or steamed, then lined up on a banana leaf.
These are the Kakanin that can be found at the local wet market everyday which you can buy from breakfast until late afternoon. There are lots to choose from.
