A little knowledge from Wikipedia about PUTO:)
Puto is a kind of steamed rice cake in Philippine cuisine derived from the Southern Indian dish Puttu. It is eaten as is or with butter and/or grated fresh coconut, or as an accompaniment to a number of savoury viands (most notably, dinuguan).-(source:wikipedia )
- Box of White King Puto Mix consist of two pack. In this recipe I only used (1 pack) good enough to make 24 mini bake rice cakes ( puto ) BUT if you decide to used the (2 pack) double the ingredients.
- If you like to have bigger PUTO used a bigger muffin tin and adjust the cooking temperature.
1 box White King Puto Mix- ( I only used one pack on this recipe)
2 tablespoon oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
food coloring- purple, green and pink
small muffin cups
non-stick cooking spray
-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
1.) In large bowl combine 1 pack of Puto Mix, granulated sugar, water, and oil. Mix well.
2.) Divide the the puto mixture into 4 parts. Drop food coloring on each bowl according to your preference and mix well. I used pink, purple and green ( my kids favorite colors)
3.) In small muffin tin, line the muffin cups. Spray with cooking spray. Add teaspoon of Puto mixture or until its halfway through. It should covered the 24 mini puto cakes.
4.) Bake the 24 puto for 10 minutes. Viola!!! Enjoy..:)
