This puto recipe is a fun and easy way to cook this Filipino cake. Wonderful food!

How to Make It

  1. Grease small cake molds or ramekins that will fit in a steamer basket.

  2. Mix flour, sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl. In a separate large bowl, scramble eggs with evaporated milk and water. Fold dry mixture into eggs until evenly blended. Fill the prepared molds 2/3 of the way up with batter and top with shredded cheese.

  3. Fill a wok or a saucepan that will hold a steamer basket with a few inches of water. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat. Place the molds into a steamer basket, place over boiling water, and cover.

  4. Steam until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the putos comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
