Puto is a popular kind of steamed rice cake that can be served plain or with cheese, salted egg or both for toppings.  

For this particular recipe, I just used all-purpose flour since rice flour isn't available in my nearby stores. There's a slight difference in the texture but the taste is still outstanding for a first-timer :)

I've topped it with cheddar cheese but I personally prefer with a slice of salted egg on it, but again, since I don't have it, cheese was more than enough to match with this excellent dessert.

  • 2 cups Sifted Flour / Sifted Rice flour
  • 1 cups Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup Melted Butter
  • 1 piece Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla extract
  • Slices of cheese
  • Water for steaming

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix well.
  2. On a separate bowl, mix the butter, evaporated milk, egg and vanilla.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture in the bowl of dry mixture. Mix thoroughly. Set aside
  4. Pour water in the steamer with medium high fire.
  5. Arrange the molds and pour the mixture in it (or you can use cupcake molds if you don't have puto molds). Steam for about 20 minutes.
  6. Put the cheese on top of each puto a minute before removing the molds from the steamer.
  7. Remove the puto from the mold and arrange in a serving plate
  8. Serve and enjoy!
