  1. Mix the rice flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and the water together in a bowl into a soft dough; set aside.
  2. Stir 1/2 cup sugar and sesame seeds together in a small bowl. Toss the coconut with the salt together in a separate bowl.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  4. Take a portion of the soft dough and roll it into a ball between the palms of your hands. Pull lengthwise and shape into a tongue. Drop into the boiling water. The cake is ready when it floats. Scoop it out with a strainer and roll it in the sugar and sesame seed mixture. Place it on a serving platter. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Top the cakes with coconut and serve warm.

These are delicious, but to make them even better, try adding a can of coconut milk or cream to the water that you boil them in. This will give the cakes a strong coconut flavor

I like the taste but using the recipe provided, I ended up with a really gooey palitao so I ended up having to add more rice flour until it was hard enough to form balls with. I love the taste ...

The measurements are all wrong. 1 cup of glutinous rice flour, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water results in pancake batter consistency. Also scooping it out of the strainger into the sugar/sesa...

Easy and simple. Always made this for Filipino parties. One of my favorite desserts.

Easy to do and delicious! I used almond and sugar plus sesame seed. Thank you! I just had the craving for this today and saw I have glutinous powdered rice. Et voila, I had "PALITAW!"
