Kababayan, which literally translates to fellow countryman, is Pinoy sweet muffin known for its golden brown exterior and distinct domed top shape. It got its name due to its resemblance to a salakot, a native straw hat Filipino farmers and townspeople wore when out and about. It’s a popular bakery item and traditionally enjoyed for breakfast or as a midday snack with a choice of hot or cold drink.
