What Is Inutak?
Inutak is a type of kakanin in the Philippines popular in Pateros and Taguig. It’s made from glutinous rice, coconut milk, condensed milk and sugar that is cooked until it forms a sticky, clumpy mass. This is then pressed into a baking dish or llanera (tin molds) and baked. The result is a uniquely-shaped, creamy sticky dessert that tastes sweet and coconutty. It is great on its own or serve with a scoop of vanilla or ube ice cream.
