Binutong is a native treat from Bicol province.

How to make binutong?

Cook malagkit (glutinous rice) in gata (coconut cream), sugar, and some salt.

While still not yet fully cooked, place a scoop of the mixture in a spread of layered banana leaves.

Gather the edges of the banana leaves and tied them together to produce a pouch holding the rice mixture inside.

Place the rice-filled pouch (or pouches) in boiling water or thinned gata to continue cooking the rice until done.

Serve binutong with hot chocolate and dried fish.

This is what the binutong looks like when you open up the banana leaves after cooking.
