Sapin-Sapin Recipe, made from rice flour or rice that has been soaked overnight then crushed into a paste, sometimes yams or yam flour, coconut milk and sugar. Each layer is tinted (the bottom one a deep ube-like purple, the middle a golden yolk yellow,the top one white), and steamed before the next layer is added.

This famous Sapin-Sapin originated from the northern part of the Philippines, the province of Abra. A treat as sumptuous as sapin-sapin is no longer surprising when ways of cooking it is already spread down to other provinces, and thus now being enjoyed by many.

    Just invert it in a plate when it’s done so that the purple part goes on top and slice it ala-pizza.
