Sapin-Sapin is a 3 layered colorful rice cake. A Filipino snack made from rice flour, coconut milk and sugar topped with curdled coconut cream. A favorite by many. Isn't the color pleasing to your palate?
Steaming process is simple in order to achieve the layers. Steam the yellow or the purple/ ube mixture first (which ever you want wouldn't matter). Then after 10 minutes, add the white mixture on top of the steamed rice cake and steam for 10 minutes. Add the yellow or purple/ ube mixture on top the white rice cake then steam again for another 10. Steaming total time will be 30 minutes.
I suggest to always cook the LATIK or the curdled coconut cream in advance so that you can use it's own oil when greasing the pan. Besides, you really have to cook it first because it takes about 30-45 minutes until your coconut cream turns into oil and leave a solid residue.
To make the Latik, use coconut cream. Pour the whole can of coconut cream in a pan and cook in low heat until it curdles.
