Puto is one of the most favorite snacks by many Filipinos and can always be found on the table in every special occasion. Be it a birthday party, holidays, potlucks and more. This is also of the best-selling treat if you plan of making it into business but of course the key is to offer your family, guests or customers with the best tasting Puto they will ever eat
I've made many different versions of puto before using All-Purpose flour, Self-Raising flour, using egg whites rice flour and Pancake Mix. They all taste different but they are all good! Please find the links below.
But this one is different. This is the tradition Puto where we use real rice grains instead of rice flour. The rice grains are soaked first then blended in water, some sugar and leftover steamed white rice until it becomes smooth Puto batter then mixed with additional sugar and baking powder to make it rise during steaming. Super easy, isn't it?
For this recipe, I used silicone molds and the traditional plastic Puto molds we get from the Philippines. I just greased them both and steamed for about 20-25 minutes. I added the cheese after steaming. Blending to make the batter smooth depends on how powerful your blender is. Mine took about 15 minutes but I made sure to rest the blender in between to avoid overheating.
You can make this plain or add flavors like Pandan, Buko Pandan or Ube Flavors. You can also add the sliced cheese in between steaming if you like.
So, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments. Enjoy :)
