How to make Filipino Espasol. What does it taste like? (Recipe)

当サイト記事には広告を含む場合があります。

I am Jinta from Japan. I introduce my favourite Filipino foods.

This time, I will introduce how to make the Filipino “Espasol”. You can enjoy it with ingredients available, so please take a look at it for reference.

My first encounter with Espasol was in Tagaytay, a summer resort south of Manila. A Filipino friend bought it for me, and my heart was touched by its nostalgic taste.

In the Kyushu region in Japan, where I’m from, I think… There is Korean candy, isn’t there? It reminded me of the Korean candy I used to eat as a child. I know that Filipino espasol has coconut milk in it. It is an indispensable ingredient in the Philippines.

Now I will show you how to make “Espasol”, with photos. I hope this will be helpful to you.

Let’s get started!

What is Espasol?

Filipino espasol is a traditional Filipino sweet made from rice flour, coconut milk, sugar and grated coconut. It is a popular snack and dessert in the Philippines and is often eaten on special occasions or as a fun treat.

Espasol has a simple, comforting taste. For many Filipinos, it is a nostalgic snack associated with family gatherings, festivals and merienda (light meals). It is also a satisfying dessert that symbolises the tradition and richness of Filipino cuisine and is loved by people of all ages.

Ingredients

Let’s take a look at the quantity of glutinous rice flour that makes 1 cup of Espasol.

  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour (for the body)
  • 1/4 cup glutinous rice flour (for the batter)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

This is important! There’s glutinous rice flour and rice flour, but when making Espasol, buy glutinous rice flour.

▼Check ‘glutinous rice flour’.

Personally, I think the maximum amount of sugar and condensed milk for Japanese taste is the 1/2 cup each mentioned above. It is just enough not to be too sweet. If you want it to be less sweet, you can adjust the sugar to 1/4 cup.

Coconut milk can be purchased by mail order. I often use this CHAOKOH.

How to make Espasol.

I will now show you how to make it, using photos.

First, fry all (1 and 1/4 cups) of the glutinous rice flour in a pan until lightly coloured. Medium heat.

Spread half of the batter on the bat. The reason for using the flour is to prevent the espasol from sticking.
