Puto (Filipino Steamed Cakes)

Puto (poo-toh) is a famous traditional steamed rice cake in Filipino cuisine. It can be served as a breakfast with coffee/tea or a light snack. Rice flour or plain flour is used and top with cheese or salted egg yolk. Instead of using rice flour/plain flour, I've found recipe using Bisquick mix! Since I've a packet in my pantry therefore I tried this bisquick version :) Small and fluffy texture and it remains soft the next day! Cute and colourful little steamed cakes which is really appealing to the kids :) 

Ingredients (8 cupcakes)
  • 150gm bisquick
  • 80gm white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese - divide into 8 portions
  • food colourings of your choice

  1. Whisk bisquick powder and sugar together.
  2. Beat eggs lightly. 
  3. Add eggs and milk into flour mixture. Stir well till no lumps are visible.
  4. Divide batter into 3 portions and add in your choice of food colourings.
  5. Fill lined muffin cups with 3/4 full of the batter.
  6. Steam over preheated steamer on medium heat for 15 mins. Turn off heat.
  7. Place cheddar cheese on top of each cakes. Cover the steamer and let the residue heat slightly melt the cheese topping.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature. Can be stored in air-tight container till next day, microwave for 20 secs to warm up if desired.
