Semi-Homemade Puto Recipe

Semi- Homemade Baked PUTO/ Rice Cakes Recipe



Weekends is here! and It's Valentines Day a perfect day to have a dinner date with your love ones. I would prefer home cook meal with family to avoid the crowd folks whose also dining out tonight and to get that relaxing feeling at the comfort of your home. While waiting for hubby to come home, I made my kids their favorite treats. As if, getting candies and chocolate this morning is not enough. It's Valentines and I'd like to spoiled them and its their favorite.. Bake Puto/ Bake Rice Cakes in 4 different colors. This is not a typical way of cooking PUTO but the taste is still have that delicious and soft traditional puto.
 Its called Semi- Homemade because I used a store bought Puto Mix which can be found any Asian store BUT if you do have a good recipe for Puto Cheese I would love to try it. Share me the recipe on my comment box below. As you may noticed I BAKED my puto instead of a traditional way " Steaming" process, for the reason that I don't have those puto mold cups. So, to those who don't have puto cups used for steaming and want that perfect PUTO on your table. This is the perfect recipe for you.!Super duper easy to make and it come out perfect every time. I forgot to mention that it also work if you like your PUTO steamed, add your favorite cheese on top! Delish.. This is perfect for your kids party or merienda at any time. It's cute and fun way to mixed up their favorite color into this yummy treats. Give this a try and let me know what you think. I enjoyed eating this scrumptious treat. YUM! I hope you like this recipe and much as I LOVE making them. C'mon lets start cooking...:) wink!
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 )



 Notes:
- 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.

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
-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..:)

  19. The puto looks so yummy. Since they are baked and I didn't see you mention using banyo maria in baking them, I want to know if the puto weren't dry.

    1. The puto texture is not dry. 10 minutes is enough to get in right consistency. But the traditional cooking process is much better I would say..:)

  20. How naman so colorful. I really want to buy the mix at the grocery the problem is we don't have oven. :-(

    1. You can still use the puto mix and cooked it traditional way " steaming". I tried some before using the rice cooker steamer and its good..:)

  21. Puto is one of my sister in law's favorite Pinoy delicacy. These days, everything is instant na noh? All ready mixed - ready for cooking. All instant, all the time hehehe! I imagine Back to the Future series where McFly's daughter just put in a hand-sized pizza into the microwave, and it came out big after a few minutes hahahaha! Instant lahat.
