Sapin-sapin is a layered glutinous rice and coconut dessert in Philippine cuisine. It is made from rice flour, coconut milk, sugar, water, flavoring and coloring. It is usually sprinkled with latik or toasted desiccated coconut flakes sprinkled on top.
Traditional recipe of sapin-sapin calls for different flavors mixed in each layer such as ube halaya in the purple layer, langka in the yellow or orange layer, but the white layer has no flavoring. The commercial version tends to have only food coloring and no added flavoring to reduce the cost.
