Note: I myself have not tried this recipe. I did not like it even when I was still a child growing up selling these in our tindahan/bakery, because I did not like the consistency. There was nothing special I found in it, but there were customers who continued to buy and eat them for some reason. So, for the sake of those who might be missing these and are interested to try and to see whether it was the same kababayan you used to like back in the Philippines, I am posting it here, as shared by a fb friend. Please be forewarned that there were those who tried this recipe and commented below, with poor feedback. I do not know when I will try this recipe. For those who have tried and did not like this, I hope you will experiment and troubleshoot what could be missing, and share your own corrected recipe. Thanks!
