Suman sa Ibus – Suman  or rice cake is a popular Filipino dessert. This kakanin is often served during merienda or even breakfast. There are several varieties of suman in the Philippines.  We have this suman sa ibus, suman sa inantalasumang kamoteng kahoy, suman moron and a whole lot more.

Among the rice cakes, our top favorite is suman sa ibus. We love the combination of malagkit, coconut milk and salt. A very simple recipe. What we don’t like about this suman is how it is wrapped. It takes time before we can finish wrapping one. Anyway, it is worth it. In case you have a difficult time making the wrapper, we suggest you use banana leaves. This goes well with sugar, ripe mango and chocolate.

Suman sa Ibus Recipe


  • 3 cups malagkit rice
  • 2 cups thick coconut milk
  • 2 tsp salt

Cooking Procedures:

  1. In a bowl, soak malagkit in water until grains are swollen (about an hour).
  2. Wash malagkit and drain. Add salt and coconut milk.
  3. Prepare the ibus wrapper (On one end of a young coconutleaf, make a knot and fold it into a triangle. Roll the coconut leaf upwards. Make sure that it overlaps. Fill the tube container with malagkit as you work your way to the top. Once you reach the top, fold it. Tie each suman with strips of coconut leaves).
  4. Arrange in a large saucepan and cover with water. Boil for 2 hours or until each is cooked completely.
  5. Serve with sugar, ripe mangoes or chocolate.
