If you’ve heard of kakanin, then surely you’ve heard of one of its most popular subtypes—the ever classic, ever timeless puto! Puto is a native Filipino delicacy, and yet another umbrella term for many other indigenous cakes; in fact, though it may be the general term used for steamed rice cakes, some variations of puto don’t even use rice at all! Whether they use ube, cassava, or other bases, you know puto from its enjoyably chewy texture and mild yet delicious taste. Coming in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors, puto abounds in both versatility and yumminess! Special occasions simply would not be complete without your rice cake of choice, enjoyed with a steaming hot cup of coffee. Dig in!
