This kababayan may not look like the one that sold at the bakery in the Philippines, but they do taste the same. Maybe because of the flour since the recipe for this call for 3 types of flour. Cake flour, 3rd class flour, and first class flour. But unfortunately this kind of flour is not available in my area where I live so I just substituted it. If you find this flour available where you are, then feel free to use it and your kababayan might look better than mine.😄
This recipe was given to me from my friend that works at a bakery in the Philippines. I also have my own version of this kababayan in my blog but this one has more authentic taste.

250 grams cake flour
50 grams 1st class flour/bread flour
1-1/4 cup water
1-1/4 cup vegetable oil
400 grams granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 cup condensed milk
3 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tbsp baking soda
2 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
1)Preheat your oven to 475.
2)In a large mixing bowl, whisk in the eggs and sugar and add in the condensed milk, oil and water.
3)Combine all dry ingredients.
4)Sift in dry ingredients to the wet and mix it using spatula until lumps free.(if you having a hard time mixing it using spatula, then feel free to use your hand).
5)Grease you muffin pan using nonstick cooking spray then, sprinkle it with a little bit of flour.
6)fill up your greased muffin pan 3/4 full and bake it in the oven for 6-8 minutes or until the top has risen up. After that open your oven door half way and lower the temperature to 325 for 12 to 15 minutes. Then close back the door and increase the temperature to 400 and bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
