Puto 'Steamed Rice Cake' Recipe by Makoy
Last year, I bought this puto mix at FairPrice when Filipino products finally made it to their store.

Anyway, I kept on promising my Filipino office mates that I'll be bring some once I have time to cook it. Well, the time is now. For the first time, I have finally cooked my first ever steamed rice cake.

For those who are interested to cook the famed puto, here are the ingredients:
1) 400g White King Puto mix
2) 2 cups of water
3) 1 cup of sugar
4) 10 tsp cooking oil
5) sliced cheese

If you don't have a ready mix with you, here are the additional ingredients:
1) 400g of wheat flour or regular flour
2) 1 cup of milk
3) 1 egg
4) 2 1/2 tbsp of baking powder
5) 5 drops of vanilla extract
6) 1 tsp iodized salt

1) Combine all dry ingredients (400g White King Puto mix and 1 cup sugar) in a bowl. (If you don't have a ready mix, combine all dry ingredients followed by the liquid ingredients then mix.)
2) Pour in the water then mix thoroughly.
3) Once the consistency becomes smooth, pour in the 10 teaspoon of cooking oil then mix again.
4) Prepare your steamer and your puto molds.
5) Make sure to fill in only 70% of the mold since the puto will rise. On top of your puto, put a generous amount of sliced cheese.

6) Steam for about 25 minutes or until you see that the puto is shiny or bouncy when you press your finger on it.

Hi Koi! You made it again...I love it...thank you so much for sharing this recipe, I really miss "puto". I will try to make it. I think that toothpick can also be used in checking the puto, like in cakes if nothing sticks on it means it's already cooked. Pressing fingers on steaming puto might result to 1st degree burn...ouch.... :) <3

Nice recipe but considering that puto sold outside is very cheap, I wouldn't put that time and effort to create a homemade puto from scratch.

I have tasted a home made puto before but I didn't like it. What is really flavorful for me is puto Calasciao from Pangasinan which are small dumplings of white puto.

Paul, that's the small version am I right? My mom used to buy that in the market.

I love homemade puto especially with cheese on top. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

Tip by the way for the cheese, if the puto is almost cooked, that's the time you put the cheese on top. It's messy especially if its quick melt cheese.

I love puto and this recipe would help home-based cooks to create their own.

I would even ask my sister to do one.. :D

Cheese bits on puto is a great idea, I should suggest this to my friend as well.

This looks interesting and easy to make. I didn't realize we can make something like this in our ordinary steamer.. :D thanks for sharing.. :D

Mark, if you don't have a steam, a regular rice cooker or regular pot will do.

a ready made mix really makes it easy to make these delicacies. of course, coupled with the right equipment, just like what you have.
