Buttered Puto

Buttered Puto is a variation of the famous steamed rice cake, Puto. This steamed mini cakes are usually eaten as dessert but most prefer to have them during breakfast (with hot coffee or chocolate) or mid-afternoon snack (usually eaten with dinuguan or blood stew). If you are looking for an easy puto recipe that you can follow, this is the one for you.

Puto

This Puto recipe uses ordinary flour, instead of rice flour or ground rice. This makes this recipe easier to prepare. In addition, the other ingredients used in this recipe are so common that you could find them in any grocery store.

You will notice that I was using colorful plastic molds in the video. I got them from the Philippines — in the flea market. These molds are hard to find outside of the Philippines, but I tried to experiment on similar products and the best that I found online were the Silicone Mini Pinch Bowls. Actually, these are even better because these are made of silicon which means that it can withstand high amount of heat.
