Polvoron, the sweet, powdery treat that Pinoys love to munch on, is often found in small bakeries or specialty shops in and around the city. You'll find them wrapped in different colors of cellophane and in a variety of flavors—plain butter, studded with pinipig, covered in chocolate, or tinged purple with ube.


You only need  a handful of ingredients to make polvoron: flour, sugar, milk powder, and butter. Try our basic polvoron recipe here:

We get this question a lot—where in the world can home bakers and cooks get his or her hands on that oval-shaped polvoron mold? All you have to do it check out the kitchen supplies aisle of your nearest major grocery. The aisle will be easy to spot and is often located near the edges of supermarkets—there will be cake pans, leche flan molds, cookie sheets, and ensaymada molds in the aisle, too. The oval-shaped polvoron molds should be stacked somewhere in the mix. If you’re lucky, you might even spot the flower-shaped ones! Check out Hi-Top  Supermarket in Quezon City, Pioneer Supermarket in Pasig, SM Supermarkets, SM Hypermart branches, and Robinsons Supermarkets
