Baye-Baye Recipe is a Filipino Food originated in Western Visayas, it is made from toasted pinipig, coconut water and grated young coconut.

Making the traditional baye-baye is a backbreaking work because the rice is roasted twice. Reason enough to make it only on special occasions or highly regarded events, like Holy Week.

Baye baye is usually cylindrical in shape and not coated with flour but in Bacolod City it comes in different colors, texture and shapes.  You can find it in many Pasalubong centers in Bacolod.
