Bibingka Donuts with Pastillas Glaze
Donuts / Dessert
We know, baked bibingka donuts have been done. BUT!!! Have you had one glazed with melty milky pastillas??? Give this a try. Because of the texture of the rice flour, along with the sticky milky glaze it gives the same feelings as an Old-Fashioned donut, but these are baked and not fried!

1 Packet White King Bibingka Mix
3 Tablespoons Jans Coconut Sugar
2 Eggs (whisked until bubbly)
1/3 Cup Coconut Milk
1/4 Cup Melted Butter
2 Tablespoons Plain Coconut Yogurt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
Coconut Cooking Spray
8 Pieces Plain Pastilias
1/2 Cup Half and Half
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 Cup White Chocolate
1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
12 Pieces of Assorted Pastillas
1 Teaspoon Desiccated Coconut
6 or 12 Silicon Donut Mold
For the Bibingka Donuts
For the Pastillas Glaze
Make the Donuts
Pre-heat the oven to 350F/180C.
Spray the silicon donut mold with the coconut cooking spray.
Spoon in about 2 tablespoons of batter into each of the donut molds. Bake for 15 minutes.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the molds for 5 minutes then take out of the mold and leave to cool on a wire rack.
Repeat with the remaining batter if you have a 6 donut mold.
Make the Glaze
In a sauce, combine the pastillas and half and half. Turn up the heat to medium low and stir with a spoon until the pastillas has melted. About 5 minutes.
Once the pastillas has melted, add in the butter and white chocolate. Mix on super low heat until the white chocolate has melted and blended in. Take off the heat and add in the powdered sugar. Mix well.
The glaze should be thick, but still runny. If it’s too thick you can loosen it with a teaspoon of half and half.
Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the glaze and put in a small bowl. Add in a drop of Ube Flavoring and mix well.
Glaze and Top The Bibingka Donuts
Take each donut and dip the side that was facing the mold (smooth side) and place back on the wire rack. Repeat with all the donuts.
Once the first dip as set, dip each donut again in the remaining glaze.
To top break the pastillas into small pieces and arrange on top of the doughnuts. Depending on the flavors that you choose you can also do what we did here. Check out our recipe notes for our variations.
