Cake In Tagalog – English To Tagalog Translations

Sadly, much like most western delicacies, there’s no official word for “cake” in the Filipino lexicon. This is mostly due to the fact that cake was never a local cuisine in the Philippines. However, like a lot of borrowed words, the Filipinos created the Tagalized “keyk” instead,

But, the Philippines does have its own set of baked goods with its own official names. Here are some examples:

  • Pandesal – Dinner Roll with bread crumbs.
  • Pan de Coco – round dinner roll like with desiccated coconut filling. Usually for afternoon snacks.
  • Bibingka- baked rice cake with salted eggs and cheese. Usually lined with banana leaf and baked over hot coal. Served with shaved coconut and sugar.
  • Ensaymada – coiled round bread with margarine and sugar on top.

Furthermore, the closest thing to a cake in the Tagalog language should be “bibingka”. However, it’s specific only to rice cake using rice batter.
