Panlasang Pinoy Special Puto Ingredients:

Materials Needed:

  • Steamer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Strainer
  • Muffin pan
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Wooden spoon or wire whisk

Puto Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon anise seeds (optional)
  • 1 cup grated coconut (or coconut flakes)

How to cook Special Puto:

  • Sift the rice flour, salt, baking powder and white sugar together.
  • In a bowl, add the coconut milk to the sifted ingredients and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add anise seeds or whatever flavoring you wish (i.e. vanilla, pandan, etc.) Mix and blend thoroughly.
  • Carefully pour the mixture into the muffin pans (greased with butter beforehand), making sure you leave 1/3 space at the top. This is to give the puto space to expand upon cooking.

    What is the green that the ingredients are sitting in? For a second I thought it was artichokes

    Oooh, this sounds really good. It reminds me of some of the rice-based dessert buns that they serve in China. I think where the flavor profile differs is in using anise, as they tend to use red bean paste and other bean or vegetable based fillings. I may just have to try this sometime.

    Wow, this is something new to me I just might have to try! Can you use something besides butter to grease the pans with?
