Pressure Cooker Biko Filipino Sweet Rice Cake

This dish is so sweet and delicious I cannot wait for you to try it for yourself. This is my Pressure Cooker Biko Filipino Sweet Rice Cake No Soak Recipe. I love to enjoy mine with fresh slices of mango’s or with the caramel topping you see in the photos.

This method is perfect for those who forget to soak their sweet rice the night before. I’m super busy with my four kids it’s hard to remember to do things like this sometimes.

Warning, this recipe does take a while to cook, but it comes out so delicious. As the cook, you get first dibs on the fresh batch of sweet rice! This is a Filipino version that I’m sure some of you can agree resembles Rice Pudding. It is ooey-gooey goodness that only needs to be reheated after it’s been refrigerated to get back to its original delicious self.

Filipino Biko Ingredients

  • Asian Sweet Rice
  • Coconut Milk

Filipino Recipe Ideas

Serve this delicious Biko along side some of my other popular Filipino recipes. My Pressure Cooker Filipino Leche Flan is a family favorite, and is highly requested during the holidays. I promise you wont make this famous dessert any other way once you see how easy it is to make in the Instant Pot.

Biko Recipe Notes

If you would like you can use small ceramic oven-safe dishes and divide the contents into them evenly. Keep all of the cooking times the same but ensure that there is an equal amount of liquid in each mini ceramic dish.

Do not overfill your mini ceramic dishes, to ensure even cooking keep the rice below the middle mark of your dishes. Make sure there is enough liquid in each dish by only filling it to a little below 3/4. If you liked this dish check out my Pressure Cooker Oxtail Soup!

I would really like to try this recipe. Can you please tell me what size bowl you use? In your directions, you say 7 quart bowl. As I asked earlier, The Instant Pot is 6 quarts, ... how do you fit a 7 quart bowl in it?

Hi Dawn, Thank you for following up with this question. The recipe had a typo and it calls for a 7 cup Microwave safe bowl (ie. Pyrex). I hope that was helpful and that you are able to try this delicious recipe. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Lola, I'm sorry, I don't have a recipe for the caramel at this time. I used a bottle of caramel that I had purchased for another recipe. I hope you are able to try this delicious recipe! Please come back and let me know what you thought of it if you do.

Jay, is it really 75min or manual high or 75 minutes on steam mode. 3 of your fans need clarification.

Hi Shar, It is 75 Minutes on Manual High. If the time seems high for some it is because this is a no-soak recipe, meaning you do not have to soak it overnight. Please let me know if you have any other questions, thank you for reaching out to me about this Shar. - Jay
